These earrings are a classic style for Tagliamonte and are crafted in 925 Sterling Silver with 18k Vermeil. Tagliamonte goes back to their roots a bit with these earrings. The lower round cameo is hand carved out of Turquoise Magnesite and depicts a Roman coin. The other vermeil cameo depicts Mercury in bas relief. He is the Roman god of commerce, often serving as a mediator between the gods and mortals, his winged feet giving him the advantage of speed, and so was the patron of circulation in general - of people, goods and messages.The cameos are separated by a column that has a fresh water cultured Pearl at each end and a Ruby cabochon in the center. French hook with safety.MSRP: $550
