Bronze plated crystal nuggets in metallic gold hang from center. The outer diamond is 2" on each side and the inner diamond is 1" on each side. The earring is about 4" long from top of earwire to bottom, and 2 1/2" wide. Earwire is 14k gold filled.
A note about brass:
Brass tarnishes naturally over time, this is also known as a patina. Some people like the antique looking effect, but others do not. Each piece is shipped with a small polishing cloth.
