These Coro screw back earrings and brooch in a matching flower motif are lovely. The tall (3 3/4″) brooch has two large flowers with curved petals surrounding round emerald-glass stones, each encircled with a row of diamanté. Two smaller, simpler flowers without petals complete the bouquet. The settings, stems, and ribbon that tie them together are rose-gold-washed sterling silver. The screw-back earrings are the same size and design as the large flowers. This Retro Modern set was made for Coro’s high-end line. Warm-toned, somewhat playful jewels!
