Amor et Virtute Drop Earrings (Gold Vermeil)
A beautifully stylish pair of disc drop earrings inspired by a National Portrait Gallery painting.
These eye-catching drop earrings in stunning Gold Vermeil feature Ralegh's motto, 'Amor et Virtute', meaning love and virtue, inscribed on the earrings. They are suitable for pierced ears only. Sold as an unmatched pair with a single ord only on each earring.
