Story

Traditionally petite, dormeuse or sleeper earrings have back to front ear wires constructed in such a manner that no pressure is put on the earlobes. The front of the earring is directly attached to the lever back wire.

These deliciously sweet earrings are of 18k yellow gold and feature a centered small half natural seed pearl (untested but guaranteed to be natural) in a scalloped edged collet. A trifecta of ridged circular forms creates a stylized deconstructed configuration reminiscent of some sea shells. Small in size and visually interesting, these earrings will enhance any shape of face.

Date: Circa 1920.
