Nice pair of Victorian gold plated hollow drop earrings. These poor earrings have seen better days, but I still think they are lovely. Because they are hollow there is some denting and in places the metal is squashed. I found one minor tear in the gold that is hard to see without a 10X loupe. There are newer lever-backs that are stamped 14K. These lovely earrings hang about 1 1/8" from the ear. They weigh 2.4 grms together. Minor darkening to the metal here and there. I would date these good old earrings at c1860's-80's.
