Antique Victorian brooch and matching earrings with fringe, gold filled. This delightful set has lots of interesting details and movement. The tops have raised, arched elements that surmount smooth, buckle-like shapes from which graduated fringes dangle. These parts are hinged and can swing forward. The gold is decorated with tiny beading and millegrain for great texture.
The brooch measures 1-3/4" top to bottom and is 1-1/8" at widest. The earrings hang 1-3/4" from the new gold filled wires and are about 1/2" at widest. The pieces are not marked but have been acid-tested.
The brooch would make a great pendant to wear with the earrings.
