Big blood-red garnets are protected by coiled serpents; the fact that they mirror each other shows that they were likely always meant to be a pair. It's not common to find earrings like this, but the ones in circulation are mostly identical (facing the same way) meaning they were a modern conversion from a set of buttons. These have slightly different tail positions - they're related, but show their individuality. A magical pair of earrings.
