In the 80s and 90s I wore earrings so big, my husband called them ear plates. And he wasn’t far wrong. Now I’m much more inclined to opt for something like these delicate emerald drops by Kataoka.
They note, “A flash of green peeking through the snow, the first sign of spring. The Juniper Earrings feature vivid green emeralds sprinkled with bright white diamonds, set on a French hook for a subtle sway. Romantic, lively, and beautiful adornments.”
These are made in Japan of 18k gold, set with .30 ct emeralds and .10 ct diamonds; they are sold as a pair for USD$2,480.
