Crotalia Crucifix Earrings

The ancient Romans were enamoured of pearls. Known as the “gems of the sea”, they were prized above even diamonds by the nobility of the Republic. The General Pompey brought back 33 pearl crowns, and a portrait of himself made entirely of pearls, from his conquests. This began a trend that was to sweep the empire. A whole new language of describing pearls in detail was born, including one in which dangling pearls were arranged so that they would gently sway and rattle when worn - crotalia.

Color: Sterling Silver

Handcrafted and individually cast. Each piece is unique, which we believe is what gives it its beauty. Certified recycled sterling silver. Nickel and lead free. Dimensions: 

Your unique piece of jewellery by Cleopatra's Bling has been handmade using traditional jewellery techniques and exceptional materials.

As we hand craft each piece, slight variations are to be expected and are what make our designs one-of-a-kind.

Please be gentle with your treasures and do not apply lotions and perfume while wearing your gold plated pieces. Please avoid water when wearing gold plated jewellery.

Gold has a tendency to scratch, so extra care should be taken when wearing and cleaning to maintain quality and appearance.

Sterling silver that is worn regularly requires less care, so we encourage you to wear your silver treasures daily.

I hope my creations bring you luck.
