Venetian explorer and trader Marco Polo was one of the first Westerners to travel the Silk Road, bringing European goods to Asia and returning with, among other things, precious gems. Here, the journey is embodied in garnet, peridot, and amethyst. Renaissance designer Benvenuto Cellini's work for the Medici family is adapted by Chinese jewelers using faceted gems mined in India—true fusion of three cultures. The gems are set in granulated 24-k gold vermeil, which is gold-plated sterling silver, a practice that started in France in the mid 18th century. Read more about Marco Polo's journey in Mike Edwards' 2001 series of articles for National Geographic magazine.

I first owned these earrings fifteen years ago. They have been a great pleasure to wear, and I have received many compliments on them. When the wire broke on one, I hoped it would be a simple matter to have it repaired - but apparently the workmanship is such that it would be very difficult to do. I was advised that replacing it would be a better option. Fortunately, they are still for sale after such a long time, although you can't buy just one. Now I have a new pair, plus one that can be worn as a pendant. I consider myself very lucky.

I bought this as a present for my mother. Within a month, the back had already tarnished. Additionally, the earrings are also quite flimsy. This is a beautiful design, but the materials and workmanship are lacking. I wouldn't make this purchase again.

        I read the previous reviews and was concerned about the quality of these earrings. I really like them anyway so I purchased them and would return if they did not live up to the expectations I had.
        I received them and immediatly put them on and love them. They are colorful and beautiful, very pretty and versitile.

          I cannot imagine why other purchasers did not like these earrings. The settings are very well made and the stones are beautiful. I have a LOT of fine jewelry and I bought these for travel so I do not have to worry about losing really valuable pieces. These earrings are excellent and look very expensive.
