Jewel of the day: S.J. Shrubsole Ancient Earrings
For that hard to buy for antiquities buff on your gift list, these earrings would be a sure-fire hit. Made available by NY antiques dealer S.J. Shrubsole, they are described as “ancient earrings; each formed as a dragon, the head and tail of gold, the body with gold and agate beads. Price range: $5,000-10,000.
I would guess the dragon makes them Asian … but for info as to provenance, historical period (ancient covers a pretty wide swath of time) and materials, contact the dealer.
