Nothing can beat the elegance of hoop and drop pearl earrings and our gold plated brass hoops sporting a large White drop pearl are the perfect example.
Roman, Renaissance, Elizabethan, Carolean women and men, royalty as well as fashion conscious women of all other walks of life have all loved this style of classic earrings. It is equally a favourite of the Princess of Wales, because classics always remain fashionable, stylish and elegant.
