Don't you mean "domes" insteand of "irregularly shaped gold painted stone"?

Thank you for your comment #

Thank you for looking so closely at our jewelry cataloging. I believe the cataloger was attempting to describe the irregular shape, texture, material, and finish of the domes, so both terms are correct. Since "dome" is a crucial descriptor for earrings of this type, I agree that adding that term to the description, especially for keyword searching, would be beneficial.

Thank you again for your interest.

Sincerely,
Laura Johnson
Associate Curator
