Elegant little drop earrings made out of hard shell carved cameo and framed in 18K solid gold. The cameo represents the profile portrait of two lovely ladies in warm tone.

The danglers feature and excellent lever back closure with an easy-fit mechanism. Their size (a little over one inch) make them easy to wear with any type of clothing. Not too heavy and not too light. They are so comfortable that you can sleep with them on, just like women used to do in the beginning of the nineteenth century. This is why they are sometimes called "dormeuses" from the French verb "dormir" (tr. to sleep)

The little drops are charming and in excellent ready-to-wear condition. Any white or cloudy spots on the background is glare and/or photographic obstructions.
