Beware the seduction of ultimate power, megalomania will bring about your own downfall. These earrings pay homage to the famous soliloquy in Shakespeare's Macbeth. The small, antiqued pewter daggers each have a small, black cabochon on the hilt and blades engraved with "1606", the year that Shakespeare wrote the bloody tragedy of a brave Scottish leader driven by ruthless ambition to regicide, murder, and tyranny. They hang from surgical steel wire. Designed and handmade in England from fine English pewter.
