Antique Victorian earrings in 14K yellow gold with periwinkle blue enamel decorations. These superb earrings feature a stationary, elongated gold briolette inside an open-worked frame, with a dangling ball drop at bottom. This outer framing is complex and gorgeous: it is scalloped on both edges, enameled in periwinkle blue, and ornamented with a tiny pattern of crosses, plus a little flower design at top and bottom. The ball drop is also elongated, so the entire earring has an elegant, tapered appearance. The back of the earring is not enameled but it is imprinted with the same design.
Measuring 2-1/2" long from the top of the wire to the bottom of the ball drop, the earrings are 5/8" at widest. The condition is very fine with only the slightest age commensurate surface wear, visible under magnification. There is a tiny opening of the seam and old gold patching on one of the drops, not conspicuous. They are unmarked but tested.
Wouldn't these be wonderful as "something blue" for the bride!
