Vintage brass has been antiqued to a soft tarnished gold color that makes the details on the brass stand out. The filigree brass covering the flower has been hand-painted so the little petals stand out. A cap of brass petals decorate the underskirt to make these earrings resemble little brass flowers underneath. Brass bead caps decorate the top of the earring. Colored crystals decorating the brass stamen and top of the earrings match the painted portion of the earrings. These earrings hang approximately 1.5" from their antiqued brass or silver plated lever-backs.
