Starting their life almost certainly as very fashionable and quality shirt studs, these beautiful Salmon coral ‘button’ shaped earrings have been adapted, with the addition of shepherd hooks, to a wonderful and wearable pair of earrings.
Each Salmon coral measures a large 1.3cm x 1.1cm and is set in 14ct yellow gold. The large and long backed shepherd hook are a rosy 9ct gold, however the distinction between the two golds is quite subtle and inner opinion insignificant once on the ear.
Dropping a noticeable 2.9cm from the ear and dancing perfectly with movement, the pretty earrings make such an impression when worn.
