Diamond-Eyed Screech Owl Earrings
with Omega Backs in 14k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A charming pair of vintage earrings, realistically modeled as screech owl faces, in 14k yellow gold with a rich, high-color bloom. These avian friends are highly dimensional, solidly-cast, and beautifully sculpted, with finely-detailed feathers and calm, watchful expressions. Their eyes are lively, white, round brilliant cut diamonds, set in bezels. These earrings are fitted with posts, and omega backs, which provide support for one's earlobes while keeping the owls straight, in wear. We love the owl as a totem of vigilance and wisdom, and these wise, feathery guys make a bold, graphic statement in wear!
