A rare pair of Victorian gold earrings in the Etruscan style. These stunning earrings fashioned from rare 20ct gold (tested using an XRF machine) are in excellent antique condition. They have had replacement posts in 9ct gold and marked 9ct on each butterfly. The oval discs have twisted rope and beaded decorations with everything present and correct. The backs of the ovals have two tiny pin prick holes that was done in the manufacturing to allow gases to escape. They measure approx. 15/16" x 7/16" (almost 1" x 1/2") and weigh 3.2g. The colour of the discs is a beautiful buttery yellow that is the norm for high carat gold. I cannot enthuse enough about these wonderful earrings and I'm sure the new owner will get many more years of enjoyment from wearing them.
