These pearl earrings have a lovely creamy luster that makes them look like fine jewelry. The earrings are screwbacks each set with 3 approximately 8mm pearls. The screws work fine and were once silverplate on brass. They are more brass now but none of that shows. They are just about 1/2 inch. These are from the 1940s or no later than the early 1950s. Very classic looking.
