Information

Gold hoop earring, a hollow tube flaring toward the bottom, with four spheres attached in a pyramidal, pendant grape bunch pattern at its widest point. Bi-shell round beads are set off by large granules, and the smooth surface of the hoop has a thin line of beaded decoration running round each side. The beading is achieved by filing the surface into a shape resembling a string of beads.
