This is the impression of an antique wax letter seal. This seal was used to secure letters and correspondence in the nineteenth century.
These are tiny earrings.... yet the antique image is perfect and crisp and a close up photograph shows how perfect the craftsmanship was on the original seal. This seal features the image of a beehive with a swarm of bees around it. Bees are the symbol of industry and diligence.
The earrings measures approx. 9mm across the top. This is approx. however as each pair are handmade and there may be small variations. The earrings are made from sterling silver and this includes sterling ear posts and sterling silver butterfly backs.
