The nephrite perfume bottle was donated to the Smithsonian in 1981 and is a "treasure from the vault" at the National Museum of Natural History.

Enamel Is Nice For the price, these earrings are not worth it. The black enamel is very nice but the rose blush garnets are barely visible. I had no snap bar closure problems. 12-31-11
SNAP BAR CLOSURE PROBLEM When I saw these earrings on clearance, I ordered them right away along with the matching ring. I had to return the earrings because the snap bar closures were defective. When the replacement earrings arrived, the snap bar closures were also defective. I am so disappointed because the design is lovely. 09-17-11
Elegant, understated simplicity! Deceptively simple but elegant and understated. The enameling in the photo looks too bold but I have found them to be very 'quiet': they blend easily with office, dress, and casual wear. Depending on what I wear, they either make a statement or complete the outfit. They are extremely comfortable and wearable for long periods of time. I would consider these a light-medium weight earring. I forget that I have them on frequently. And, they are NOT too wide. A beautiful, imaginative translation of a Smithsonian treasure. 07-02-11
