A stunning pair of dangling drop earrings comprised of an 18 karat gold design set with white sapphires, natural rubies, turquoise, and pearls, the design comprised of an upper floral drop pendant set with a central ruby and six white sapphire petals linked to a lower double-sided, animorphic (perhaps turtle-shaped) pendant , each central ovoid section (on both sides) with two rubies and five white sapphires, the legs set with four aqua turquoise stones on each side, the tail with two white sapphires on each side, and seven triple pearl danglers (that's twenty-one pearls on each earring).
