This elegant and wearable pair of gold Indian earrings are enamelled on their backs with Mughal-inspired floral motifs, and are set with emeralds. The sides are decorated with green enamel in sympathy with the green of the emeralds. Each has small baroque pearls suspended by gold wire and fixed with small green-glass terminals.

The earrings have screw mechanisms for non-pierced ears.

The earrings are stable, wearable and without losses or repairs.
