Description

Ancient glamor and semiprecious materials combine in a unique pair of Lapis Cleopatra Earrings. Deep blue lapis stone has been used for decoration and ritual for millennia. Cleopatra even used powdered lapis as eye makeup. Here it's paired with irregularly shaped Keishi pearls and wavy gold-plated pewter beads for a striking blue, gold, and pearl trio.

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