Girl with a Pearl Earring

Continuity mistake: When Vermeer picks out earrings for his wife to wear, he selects two pearl earrings (same one later found on Griet). When he hands them to his wife, he gives them both to her, however when you look at Vermeer in the next shot he is holding one of the earrings.

Add time

Continuity mistake: Van Ruijven grabs Griet and makes her drop the plates she is holding. She bends down and picks up a broken piece of crockery and an unbroken plate. In the next shot, the plates she is holding are both unbroken.
