Rich Gold Vermeil Necklace and Earring Set
Our necklace and earring set is a fine reproduction of Mogul jewelry using silver dipped in 24 karat gold. The beads are pale green jade, a cooler hue than they appear in the photo. The gold is deep antique yellow with rouge accent. The necklace length is adjustable 17 to 18 inches. The earrings are 1.5 inch in diameter with modern posts in the back.
We discovered this sumptuous style of jewelry combing through connoisseur collections of old gold in London, Paris and Delhi. Worn by the noble and wealthy castes of Western India during the 17th and 18th centuries, the design of these exquisite beads originates in the symbolism of astrology and prosperity rituals.
Necklace and earrings must be bought as a set, but of course can be worn separately.
