These earrings belonged to my grandmother. They appear to be gold, have a small pearlescent stone set in a flower carving with a fine flower stalk. No artist markings of any kind.
What I find unusual about them is that they have back-entry hinged wires (meaning the wire must come from the back of the ear to the front) with very large hinges, and I haven't been able to get them on yet.
If anyone has seen anything similar, I would love to know more about them, such as approximate era, where they might have been made. She would have acquired them before 1957.
