Description

Gleaming 24-karat gold-plated beads alternate with blue-and-white porcelain adapted from Ming and Qing Dynasty vessels in our National Museum of Asian Art and handcrafted in the U.S. Despite the formal elegance of both porcelain and gold, their juxtaposition here gives these simple hoop Gold Ball with Porcelain Bead Earrings an eclectic, more playful look.

This jewelry item comes packaged in a white box (pictured).
