Description

The Metropolitan Museum's lovely Coin Pearl Earrings are based on a pair of beautiful gold earrings from Episkopi (a city on the southern coast of Cyprus) in The British Museum. These original earrings are set with a glass seal showing a helmeted head. Lavish jewelry became more common during the imperial period (after 27 B.C.). Goldsmiths combined Etruscan and Hellenistic styles and techniques with new Roman decorative themes.

Produced in cooperation with the British Museum, London.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from clean, clasical look that goes with any outfit The combination of slightly irregular coin pearls and thick gold wires give this pair of earrings a nice hand-made appearance and looks whimsical enough for casual outfits and yet muted and classic enough for work. Have been wearing them nonstop since I got them. The pair I received looked slightly different from pictured, in the sense that the coin pearls are turned sideways instead of facing straight, but still looks fantastic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too fragile The wire on this earring broke the first time I tried to put them in. Disappointed. Plan to return them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect I was thrilled to put in my order on Cyber Monday, without realizing what a special day it was to make a purchase; I not only had a discount but free postage as well! I bought the earrings to replace one of a pair that I had lost. They are handsome although the workmanship is not as good as I had anticipated. Frankly, it is far too much trouble to ask for a replacement.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very attractive and stylish for everyday or occasion. But I am very disappointed that the gold wore off. The description says it is 24K gold overlay on sterling silver. I bought a pair two years ago in NY and did not use cosmetics or perfumes or get it wet. But but the gold wore off after about 18 months. The coin pearls have retained their lustre and still look great. I will probably have to get the pearls re-set but this will be at a cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty, but not my style These are extremely pretty pearl earrings, but I thought they would be bigger. They do not show out well, and I like my earrings to be seen easily. Do not hesitate to get them if you like fairly small earrings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I lost my silver coin pearl earrings over a year ago and have not been able to replace them. I've called every Met Store to no avail. Apparently The Met Store does not carry them in silver anymore. Yes, I could buy them in gold, but I mostly wear white gold or silver jewelry. If anyone has a pair in Silver, I'd love to buy them. Please, MET STORE BUYERS, start carrying them in Silver again!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Half sized Coin pearl! Having lost a single earring from a previous purchase of same, I was desolate to find the new pair to have flat pearls a fraction of the originals (see photo attached)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorites My brother gave me a pair of these earrings for a Christmas gift several years ago. They are totally my taste and I love them: Big enough to see, but not too big to by obnoxious. I wore these day/night/in the shower for over a year and they always looked fantastic. This summer, I noticed that some of the gold had worn off, so I replaced them with a new pair. Now, I don't wear them every day, but often and get many compliments. Absolutely my favorite all-time earrings. =)
