These cameo earrings are so pretty! The shell cameos are nicely carved with lots of detail and they measure approximately ½” x ½”.
They’re clip back style but the cameos could be easily removed and slipped onto wires for pierced earrings or you could slip a gold or pearl post type earring into the loop at the top of the cameos! These are suggestions only – (I have done this with cameo earrings in my collection) – the earrings are wearable/excellent without any modifications.
The metal is gold-tone – I don’t know if there is any gold content – they were in the pretty blue box when I purchased and I assume it’s original to the earrings.
