Description

2-3-5 (Pyramid).
Dangling earring out of freshwater pearls and 18karat gold. The pattern is based on the 2-3-5 soccer formation. For pierced ears. One piece. Made in Munich.
By the 1890s, this was the standard formation in England and was common all over the world. Most top level teams used it in some variations until the 1930s. A balance between attacking and defending was created for the first time. In the 1924 and 1928 Olympic Games and as well in the 1930 FIFA World Cup, this soccer formation was successfully used by Uruguay national team to win. And it is the 2-3-5 which created the convention of shirt numbers increasing from the back and the right.
