French Louis XVI Style Gold and Pearl Earrings, late 1800s
An unusual pair of French Belle Epoque earrings in the Louis XVI style dating to the mid- to late-1800s. Very intricately crafted from red gold then dipped in yellow gold, and highlighted with red, green and white gold flowers. The earrings are constructed in two parts: a red gold disc is hand incised and set with a pearl, a hinge connects it to a drop set with a red gold bow. The drop, accented with a natural pearl, is further decorated with a hand cut design and the aforementioned flowers. Emblematic of one of the many 'revival' movements of the late Victorian period. A matching locket will be listed separately.
Beautifully created, they are light and easy to wear. Perfect for a bride, or any other special occasion.
Condition: Excellent; the pearls are original to the earrings. No signs of repair or alteration.
