These wonderful gold Antique drop earrings are very stylish and are crafted in such a way that light bounces off and catches the sun in the most delightful manner.
These are original Victorian earrings that are in excellent original condition and are estimated to date back c.1860-1880's. Earrings from this era of time are particularly favoured and often worn in abundance and in many different styles.
This is made in the 'Etruscan' style which is identifiable by the soft matte patina which adds to the gentle glow they give.
Fitted with easy to wear shepherd hooks, the simplicity of the gleaming balls that drop down contrast well with the intricacy of the strands of 'beaded and bobbled' fringe which catch and return the light so well that they seem to twinkle as you move.
Measuring approximately 6cm from top to bottom, they weigh in at 3.7g so very comfortable and easy to wear for everyday.
They would look incredible paired with a silk blouse of any colour, to further accentuate that velvety texture.
Gold testing shows it to be 14ct yellow gold
