Antique Italian Micro Mosaic Cuff Button Earrings
These beautiful antique Italian micro mosaic men’s cuff buttons have been resigned in to amazing light weight earrings! Victorian cuff links were often antique buttons that had been joined by their metal shanks with wires or ribbons. The original shanks did not survive time so their backs have been sanded smooth.

Earring length: 1 1/2 inches
