These faux pearl & gilt basket earrings are in gilt metal with lever back fittings. They are made in the Spanish Damascene work style and could have been made in the Toledo area where this work is done. Spanish Damascene work consists of working with gold on top of non precious metals. These earrings have that 'look' but not the work involved in real Damascene work. They are in good condition.
