Setting natural stones into metal probably originated in ancient Turkey, perhaps near the village of Bodrum where we were inspired to create these stately earrings. Like the artisan-made treasures of that region, these earrings feature pillowy squares of Howlite with a rich gold stripe. Draped below is a long, sleek tassel of gleaming gold colored strands. We love this mix of materials and the way these earrings appear to elongate the neck. 3-1/2" drop.
