These cute Blue Crab earrings are our newest addition to our sea life line. The coins were from the island of Malta and were minted in 1986. I have offered this design for years as a pendant and it has always been popular so we are now offering the design as earrings. The earrings measure just 3/4″ in diameter so they work very well as a pair of earrings and are very light so comfortable to wear. After we do the hand cutting work we plate the earrings in our 14 karat gold and rhodium finish to bring out certain areas of the design. The earrings are mounted on 14 karat gold filled ear wires.
