Baroque Pearl Dangle Earrings | AAA 6-10mm Natural White Genuine Cultured Pearls
A glamorous and unique pair of baroque & semi-round freshwater pearl earrings, fit for a queen.
This earring is probably very similar in size and shape to the earring famously consumed by Cleopatra to win a bet:
Cleopatra bet Antony a large sum of money that she could host the most expensive meal in history. She removed one of her pearl earrings and dropped it in a goblet of wine vinegar. Each of the pearls was so large and rare that it was extraordinarily valuable...the value of 15 countries. The pearl dissolved in the vinegar, which Cleopatra then drank. Antony conceded defeat—the value of that single drink, let alone the banquet, had indeed been more than any meal in history.
