This is a pair of blue topaz and cloisonne 24K vermeil (gold over sterling) earrings with 4 inch dangling dark blue silk tassels. These moden small square post earrings are cloisonné (filigree and enamel) work with Chinese traditional motifs and have bezel set oval cut blue topaz gemstones. Also they have the designer BG initial and 925 mark on the back. Atlanta based jewelry designer Barbara Garwood traveled to the far border of China and found a group of Mongolian cloisonné artists around 30 years ago. Unfotunately this detail oriented hand crafted technique has faded away because the newer genareation has not kept up their traditional skills. These precious artisan earrings combine tranditional and modern concepts. So, own this pair of vermeil filigree earrings and pass them on to the next generation to create your own family tradition.
Dimensions: 0.75 x 0.75 inch earrings with 4 inch drop tassel
