Vintage Pearl Button Drop Earrings

Amelia in Pearl Earrings

Elegant and understated, these pearl earrings are the perfect complement to your favorite jeans and blouse. 

They show off two hand-carved pearl buttons made from mussel shells harvested from the Mississippi River by the Lady Washington Pearl Button Company. When the button company closed its doors in 1964, the great-grandson of the original owner, decided to sell the remaining stock and we bought it all.

Grandmother's Buttons hand-dyed the vintage pearl buttons in small batches on a stovetop in our St. Francisville, Louisiana design studio.

In this piece:

  • Two Lady Washington vintage mother-of-pearl buttons 
  • Small brass flower stampings made today in the USA in vintage dies
  • Nickel-free and lead-free brass kidney wire closures
  • Hangs 2"
