    These 1920s earrings feature a large, faceted, round crystal bead dangling from a filigree caps. Above each pendant is a small, faceted, round bead set between the halves of a pointed-top bicone bead. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver ear wires with lever backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These earrings walked the runway at Toronto Fashion Week for Spring 2019. Scroll down to see a selection of necklaces and brooches – in crystal alone and in combination with colored stones – to wear with these versatile earrings.

    Dainty and elegant, these 1920s earrings feature a faceted crystal ball dangling from a fine sterling silver chain. The framed glass stone that fronts the screw back appears to have darkened only because the attachment of the mechanism doesn’t allow light to pass through it. The screw backs can be modified for pierced ears. These earrings go with absolutely everything and can be worn with all color palettes! Scroll down to see a selection of necklaces and brooches to wear with this lovely pair.
