These antique malachite bead tassel earrings are such an easy way to make a statement— they are exceptionally lightweight, so you won't even notice they're on your ears for hours at a time. The tassel is made of tiny malachite beads, with subtle natural variations in hue creating dimension. The fish hook it sits on was added at a later point (probably replacing an older one) but the main part of the earring dates to the late 19th century. Note the beautiful gold filigree work at the top. Contemporary jewelry designers, namely Oscar de la Renta jewelry, are constantly drawing inspiration from antique tassel earrings like these, but these are the real deal— the original! The gold seen is gold-fill, the next-closest metal to solid gold, which is resistant to tarnishing and safe for the skin. Sits on a fish hook for pierced ears, and measures about 66 mm long; slight variation of lengths creates a perfect shape.

Great antique condition. With any questions about the specific condition or size, please email for additional photos or measurements, as all sales are final.
