Sputnik Earrings with Onyx
These earrings are inspired by the Met's starburst chandeliers, one of the best-loved features of the opera house. Dubbed "Sputniks" after the Russian spacecraft, these stunning crystal chandeliers were a gift to the Met from the Austrian government.
The earrings are made of bronze with bright silver finish. Both the clear and the black stone are cubic zirconias. The earwires are sterling silver.
Total length: approx. 1.5" (starburst is approx. 1" diameter)
The Metropolitan Opera’s starburst chandeliers have been a beloved fixture of the opera house at Lincoln Center since it opened in 1966. Dubbed “sputniks” after the Russian spacecraft, they reflect light brilliantly through clusters of Swarovski crystals.
