Arabesque designs—repeating geometric patterns of flowers and animals—are often found in Middle Eastern art and architecture. In Islamic art, these never-ending patterns symbolize a spirituality that extends beyond the visible world. These 24-karat gold-vermeil earrings pair intricate arabesque design with a timeless style. Gold vermeil is a technique first used in 18th-century France for gold-plating sterling silver.


Handmade in Cairo. 2" long.

These earrings are so beautiful and I've worn them so often since I bought them (a year ago, I think?) that I just purchased another pair in case I lose my current pair or they stop making them or something. These are my favorite earrings that I currently own, minus family heirlooms. They are very well made and haven't tarnished at all nor have I had any trouble with the clasp. The only scenario where I wouldn't wear them would be certain traveling situations, because it's pretty clear that they are real gold, and even though they're small and tasteful, that's just not very nice to flaunt them in some situations. Aside from that, I would wear these to any occasion, including just around the house -- because I enjoy them that much.

The earrings are stated as "24-karat gold-vermeil". However, gold never tarnishes! I bought two pairs; one for myself and one for my daughter. I noticed that within two weeks mine began to tarnish. My daughter came to visit, and stated that she had worn hers very seldom, but had also noticed that they were tarnishing. Shame on NGS for claiming that the earrings are gold, when indeed they are not!

    Comments about Egyptian Arabesque Gold Earrings:

    The earrings are beautiful & I love them! I have owned them for more than a year, and they have yet to fade or tarnish. They are a heavier earring, but to me, that means they are better made. I would rather the weight than for them to feel cheap.

            These earrings are a timeless gem! They are beautifully made, and just the right weight. They can be worn with anything. I have very long hair, and they still stand out when wearing them. The quality is superb!

                The earrings are stated as "24-karat gold-vermeil". However, gold never tarnishes! I bought two pairs; one for myself and one for my daughter. I noticed that within two weeks mine began to tarnish. My daughter came to visit, and stated that she had worn hers very seldom, but had also noticed that they were tarnishing. Shame on NGS for claiming that the earrings are gold, when indeed they are not!
