The earrings are made of red brass, or tombac – a material containing 80 % of copper and 20 % of zinc, which was highly favored by the 19th-century jewel-making. The earrings are decorated with high-quality opals that were mined in the Slovak city of Dubnica. The central gem is of 9 millimeters in diameter and it is surrounded by twelve small opals in order to result in the form of a small flower. Two opals are set in the part of fastening. The earrings on display originate from the Austrian-Hungarian region and can be dated to the period around 1900
