Rare Spectacular 15K Gold Victorian Etruscan Revival Dangle Earrings

These spectacular earrings are absolutely gorgeous!

They are large. They are exquisitely made. They are highly wearable. They are guaranteed to attract nothing but the highest praise!

This piece of jewelry was made in the 1870's and in the Etruscan Revival tradition they feature fine granulation and cut-out scroll work.

They are at least 15K but not 18K which is typical of English made jewelery of the time. They have been acid tested and are not marked.

One of the best features of these earrings are the way the ear hooks are hinged. This enables the putting on and taking off of the earrings in a very easy fashion without putting undue stress on the ear wire itself. Also, the bottom two parts are hinged to the round disk-like portion at the top which allows movement and allows for the dangly effect.

There is a vertical row of tiny seed turquoise that are very sturdily set and there is a prong set ruby at the top of the "wreathe-like" ornamentation. There are larger seed turquoise in the top disk portion.

These spectacular earrings are in excellent condition. The only anomoly worth mentioning can be seen from the side view - note the earring closest to you - the wreathe rises up slightly higher than on the other earring. As you can see from the front views (first photo) you cannot see this except from the side and unless someone points it out.

The earrings measure 2 1/4" x 1". They weigh 11.8 gm. The clever construction of these earrings means that they are much lighter in weight then they initially appear and will not pull on your earlobes. Very comfortable to wear all day long, every day!

The color of the gold is much closer to 18K. It definitely has a warm, antique patina. with crevices darkened with the collection of 140 years of life.

It is interesting to note that another seller on Ruby Lane has a matching (single) earring that has been converted into a pendant. She obtained a GIA appraisal for $1,400.00. Email me and I'll give you the link to that listing as you might well be interested in having that piece too!

We cannot ship these earrings Internationally nor can we do layaway. Sorry.
