What a unique pair of Victorian Earrings. True Day/Night earrings they have an extra large French wire that opens so that the tops can be worn alone or dangles added for a more dramatic and more dressy look for evening wear. The earrings have a distinct rose gold hue while the tassels are just a bit more yellow gold. They are completely original.
The earrings have beautiful open work and the tassels have wonderful movement. Each earring has 11 tassels which moves independently of one another. All are original and in place. There are natural seed pearls that safely set so they will not be lost. Each earring has 3 very three dimensional flowers. One in the top and two in the bottom portion. There is a small rim of deep blue cobalt blue enamel which frames the outer edges of the drop portion. The oversized earwires allow for very easy on and off. The top portions can be worn every single day with extreme comfort.
These dangle 2 1/4" long x 5/8" when top and bottom worn together. The tops dangle just over 1" from the top of the earwires x 3/8" across . These have professionally tested for 14K gold. Each earring weighs 5.6 grams for a total of 11.2 grams. They are just the perfect weight in my opinion and have fantastic movement. Not at all light weight and not too heavy for the ears. The wires have very tiny hash marks which were very difficult to photograph. These were purchased in Italy and I believe they are Italian in origin.
Circa 1880, Victorian period. Mint condition with no apologies to be made. Completely unique, unusual all original and simply stunning on the ear. Questions are always welcome and encouraged.
