Each earring in this pair is composed of blue and colorless rose-cut pastes set in gold prong mounts. The earrings are girandole style, with a top stone from which is suspended a large inverted 'v' of round and tear-drop shaped stones. Hanging from the center stone in the 'v' is a small maltese cross of tear-drop blue and round clear pastes. The earrings attach with gold ear wires.
