These beautiful earrings are made from brass stampings sourced in America that have been pressed using the original vintage moulds. True to their vintage origins they are exactly the same as what a jeweller in the victorian era would have used. From the USA they have been transported and plated with sterling silver and then oxidised to provide an antique finish. The shell leverback findings are also sterling silver plated and are hypoallergenic settings. Each swallow carries in its beak a bunch of individually wired garnet berries. These garnets are natural and hand shaped beads. Each one has a different hue of red providing the berries with a lovely authenticity. These berries are pressed czech glass and have a stunning glow. Made from unique materials these delicate earrings are both elegant and pretty.
