These exquisite dangle earrings showcase the delicate and intricate beauty of filigree. Peruvian artisan Alfredo Inga handcrafts these sterling silver earrings in a kite shape with a rope motif border and filigree scrolls connecting to a bead at the center. The earrings are oxidized to give them an antiqued look.
