The Angle Earrings are of up cycled silver plate tray, with a fire patina. This particular pair has a lot of depth to the patina, dark and mysterious. About 2 inches long, and about 1 inch at widest part. Silver posts, but, if you have sensitive ears, and determined to wear these, you can put a bit of fabric or plastic between your ear, and the metal. The light was glancing off the left earring, but both are as dark as the one on the right.
