This pair of earrings is made from 18 karat gold with a brushed texture, designed to resemble shimmering golden icicles, each dangling from a reversed triangle. Unique in both design and material, they stand out as most similar earrings found today are in silver and feature a single spear. These earrings are distinctive, perhaps something Queen Cleopatra VII of Egypt might have adorned, adding a touch of ancient regality to their appearance.

When worn, they drape gracefully, making a bold statement with their multiple gold spears. They are also presented in their original case, adding to their unique charm and value.

Make a grand entrance at your next high-society soiree or black-tie affair with these magnificent earrings, where their gold sheen and Cleopatra-esque charm will turn heads and spark conversations.
