    I think these are probably antique, they have been hand made as you can see from the photos. I recall seeing similar earrings, but I can't seem to find them now, oops. There are no hallmarks, but they have checked out as sterling. They are for pierced ears. The top is a turquoise stud, then a drop with to 2 others, which then attach to the blister pearls which are set in a serrated silver mount, that are in a tear drop shape. On 3 sides of the pearls are 3 small turquoise set in circular mounts. The earrings are approx 3cm long. The pendant comes from a brooch I bought which had this has a drop, I thought it looked stupid so I took it off. Now the pendant as a new lease of life with these earrings, it's a good job I didn't throw the pendant away.
    I would like to know if anybody as any thoughts.
    Many thanks for looking

      Lovely! These are old, antiques now. The stem for pierced ear is a later adaptation with soft solder.

      I'll have a search to find similar, I've seen before too :-)

      The pendant is a perfect complement, never throw away a part you remove from jewellery, it can be useful in the future !

      I love how organic these are with the naturally imperfect blisters.
      A great demi now Jean!

      Thank you kyra, I did think they were probably from the Art Nouveau period, they loved their blister pearls. I have a couple of bracelets I bought recently by Murrle Bennnett, both of them have blister pearls they were fond of blister pearls, luckily most of their pieces were marked, It's a shame this wasn't marked, but they look rustic to my eyes not of the same quality of the better jewellery makers of that era. But they do look wonderful on. As always thanks for your help, I've learnt a lot from you over the last two year. :-)
