Vintage brass has been antiqued to a soft tarnished gold color that makes the details on the brass stand out; or it has been silver plated with an oxidized vintage finish. The top layer of filigree has been hand-painted so the little swirled petals stand out. 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 2" from their antiqued brass leverbacks.
