Description

These distinctive earrings accented with carnelian take their unusual design from a pair of beautiful ancient earrings in The Met collection, which were made in the second century A.D. or later in Rome. The striking original earrings, delicately crafted of gold, feature large glass cabochons and twin dangling pendants adorned with elongated beads. The abstract simplicity of this timeless jewelry design retains its appeal today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful unique design I just got these earrings, and I don't understand the other reviewers' complaint that the earring is "too small"....? First, the description on line does state the size (1/4" wide x 1 1/8" long) so the size should not be a surprise... AND, the earring is actually larger than stated: it is 1/2" wide... (the 1 1/8" length is correct) I would actually prefer it to be 1/4" (diameter), but even at 1/2" it's absolutely beautiful and unique! I'm looking forward to wearing the pair with all of my red dresses (red is my favorite color so this pair will get a lot of "workout" :-)) I love these earrings and will wear them frequently, starting with Christmas dinner... Happy Holidays, thank you MET!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Actual size is very small These earrings are pretty but very tiny. The picture makes them look very large and chunky but in reality they are very small. I returned them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very small The design of these earrings would be gorgeous IF they would be of larger size but they are not. They are actually very small and sit weird on the ear lobes. I decided to return them. The picture does not show them at their actual size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lovely and unusual Beautiful earrings unusual - smaller than I thought they would be but I really think they are lovely. Postage is expensive but I love the Met's jewelry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beatiful These earrings are quietly elegant and very beautiful, and garner lots of compliments. An excellent purchase and worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful earrins I had seen these earrings for the last two years and decided to splurge as I made a carnelian ring years ago in a YMCA jewelry class and rarely had seen this stone in any jewelry. The earrings are exquisite and all I had hoped for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Misrepresented color I loved these earrings in the catalog and online as the color showed as a rich deep red. I was disappointed when I got them as they are more of a watery orange and a bit cheap-looking. Still haven't decided if I will keep them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too small! Knew that they would be smaller than image, but really too small and don't fall correctly. Bought in November and sent back immediately, waiting for refund. However love and have bought beautiful earrings from Met before.
