These marvelous earrings are probably a reproduction of the Miriam Haskell earrings shown on page 300 of "Collectible Rhinestone Jewelry." The Haskell earrings are goldtone and these are silvertone. There is a bit of evidence of glue around the pearls, but you have to be pretty close to see it. Really gorgeous earrings! (Any green you see is a reflection of my shirt.) They will be shipped in a gift box and protective bubble envelope.
