An outstanding pair of cut steel earrings, this rare pair features cut steel laid atop French Jet perfectly to create a dramatic backdrop to create ultimate sparkle. A rare, ephemeral set, I like to think of jewels like this as elevated costume jewels. Costume pieces are considered to be ephemeral, but somehow, when a pair like this stands test of time, we must recognize their evergreen nature.
