Description

Among the treasures of the Museum's historic Cesnola Collection are two gold crescent-shaped earrings produced on Cyprus (5th century B.C.–1st century A.D.). They are embellished with granulation, a form of ornamentation in which tiny grains of metal are fused to an underlying surface metal. Such a combination of a gold setting with semiprecious stones speaks of influence from the East. Our dramatic earrings are based on these ancient Cypriot originals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and intriguing ! These are not too small nor too large.  Not heavy and the stones are gorgeous.  As always the quality of workmanship is exceptional.  They can make an outfit and without a necklace, they look even more intriguing.  Highly recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gorgeous but flawed I love these earrings and the fact that they are replicas of originals - however, two of the stones have fallen out within only a handful of times wearing them. I glued one back in, and then another fell out and was lost. I will be contacting the museum for a refund or replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful earrings well worth the price I bought these earrings a few years ago and lost one. I liked them so much that I bought a second set last month. The man ship is beautiful and the earrings are comfortable. I have the matching necklace; I get many compliment on the pieces whether I wear them alone or as a set. I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like the picture I'm very pleased with how these earrings look, and I like that they are not heavy, even though they have a solid appearance. I don't always like the gold color of Met jewelry, but I do like it here, and the glass stones as well.
