These feminine drop earrings have gold-plated screw-back unpierced ear wires. At the cup of the ear wire, small circular glass beads are set against gold plated hearts in the shape of a flower. The drop consists of gold-plated filigree from which a pink blown-glass bell-shaped bead dangles. Extending from the filigree, a gold-plated oval wire is threaded with small pale pink glass beads. Bell-shaped glass beads of various sizes dangle from the bottom of the oval wire.
