Victorian Gem-set Earrings c.1880
A beautifully detailed pair of gemset Victorian earrings.
These stylish earrings have filigree work knots suspended from a hinged hook fitting to the top surmounted with a gold leaf design. Each earring is set with a garnet and chrysolyte to the centre with an articulated garnet drop to the base.
The knots are finely detailed with gold overlay work and these beautiful earrings are lightweight, typical of the Victorian era making them easy to wear. The earrings are slightly different to each side and may have orginally come from a much larger set. We believe the settings are orginal and the earrings retain their original gilding.
These earrings would complement any outfit proving that good design never dates.
