Fabulous Antique Victorian Paste Chandelier Drop Earrings, c. 1880

Every once in a great while I find a pair of paste earrings that just straight up fool me, and I don't even realize that they aren't diamonds until I'm quoted a price. Case in point; these utterly fabulous and spectacularly sparkly Victorian paste beauties.

Set in wonderfully weighty silver with closed backs and topped with 9 karat wires, these beauties are in exemplary condition. They measure 1.25 inches across at the widest point and drop just over 2.5 inches from the top of the wire. Fully articulated for maximum effect, they weigh 15.3 grams together.

As dressy and sophisticated today as when they were created in the 1880's, these earrings will only wear better as the night wears on. I bought them in London and I'm certain they are English in origin.

I offer layaway on most items purchased for full retail price. In general my layaway terms are 1/3 down and 1/3 in 30 days and the last 1/3 in 60 days. I am flexible so if you are interested please ask me and we can work out a payment plan that suits you. Items ship when payment is complete and items purchased or payments made on layaway are eligible for store credit only.

I always want you to be happy with every aspect of your purchase on my lane. If you are not completely satisfied for any reason simply let me know and we'll work together to get the item returned for a full refund. I guarantee that my pictures and descriptions are as accurate as possible. My goal is to exceed your best expectations!
