Silky brushed gold and swirly lines make these earrings oh so sensuous! They have the rich extravagant feel of 80's-90's hedonism, as if someone stole precious shell fossils from a museum and coated them with a thick layer of gold, just because. Gorgeous on the ear or on the bedside table, you'll love these heavy designer babies by Jilbari Designs (high end costume jewelry, 1978-93).
Vintage gold-plated metal. Marked Jilbari. Just under 1" wide. Very good condition with only the very slightest wear to the plating. One of our favorite finds.
The Wagner Free Institute in Philly is an amazing scientific resource, with a collection that includes interesting and beautiful historical scientific drawings like the shells in the split view of our model shot here. From a group of fossil shell drawings by Friedrich Adolph Homer in 1836. If you love art + science, check out the Wagner Free Institute. But please don't steal anything! ;)
