I can't tell you how fabulous these earrings are. The pinchbeck (that metal the English used to look and wear like gold but isn't) actually looks more like gold than gold. The detail on these earrings are wonderful. There's no way I would know these weren't gold if I had not been told or I had not tested them. They are circa 1840. Each earring measures 2 and 1/2 inches long, and 3/4 of an inch wide. The chasing on the metal is so beautiful!
