The city’s Renaissance stylings are juxtaposed stunningly alongside the ancient wonders of the Roman Colosseum and Pantheon.

     

    35mm long (~1 1/4 inches), these dazzling gemstone earrings will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of their inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented pair which makes the perfect gift.
