Today I am selling a sweet pair of Victorian silver earrings made during the Aesthetic period. The sterling round drops have a raised etched design of a flower with applied 9ct yellow and rose gold leaves and petals. They are surrounded by a recessed ring and a scalloped, bead dotted border. They are not hallmarked but acid test positive for sterling silver. The shepherd hook earrings wires has a bead style base and are original to the earrings.
CONDITION: Very good for their age. Minor tarnish on the front and back. The back of one has a long dent.
CIRCA: Late Victorian era
MEASUREMENTS: the drops are 5/8 of an inch in diameter including beaded border, full length is 1 1/8 inches
