These Victorian earrings are pretty special. They feature hand-carved shell cameo ladies set in an elaborate frame of sterling silver. Marcasite stones sparkle along the scalloped openwork bottom. Along the top is a row of Bohemian garnets. The cameo ladies are pretty and nicely detailed.
The earrings have a diamond-shaped post for pierced ears. They measure 1 3/8 inches across the widest by 3 inches long. Together, they weigh 20.8 grams. They're big and regal.
There are no markings but these have been both machine and acid-tested for sterling. The silver has not been polished and retains its natural aged patina. A jeweler could polish them if that's your preference. The back clutches are replacements. These earrings are a rare pair from the Victorian era...in excellent antique condition with stones intact.
