"The mountains are calling & I must go . . . "

A pair of antique, Victorian-era earrings, each taking the form of a miniature mountain scene. The peaks of these little mountains are decorated with black tracery enamel and fine engraving. The row of seven seed pearls below the mountain peak represents the cloudline, and four diamond-shaped drops of turquoise rain dangle below it. A green turquoise sun sets (or rises, depending on your philosophical perspective), to one side of this mountain. These natural turquoise cabochons are pyramid shaped, and the green turquoise cabs are slightly different in color. Exceptionally sweet and very unusual.
