A charming pair of Victorian era dangling earrings, with canatille tops and shapely, natural coral drops. The earrings' visually-delicate wirework tops are made to resemble simple, four-petaled flowers each flower petal is a spiraling, gold wire with a sparkling, textured edge, and a gold bead rests at the center of the blossoms. The earrings' drops are carved, red-leaning, salmon-colored coral their long, elegant shapes call to mind a bird's talons. Earwires are French hooks. These earrings are special enough for occasions and lightweight enough for frequent wear. The slightly-edgy, geometric quality of the drops lend them an almost contemporary vibe.
