This beautiful set is an estate find that dates to the Victorian era. The pierced earrings are crafted in gold fill and set with spectacular antique paste stones. Paired with this 10K paste brooch they make a stunning antique accessory.
I believe the earrings were converted to these wires at some point in time as the Victorian wires were always much smaller. They measure 5/8'' x 3/8'' with 3mm stones. Just as we like them they will display at the bottom of the ear lobe. victorian earrings are known for their petite stature.
The 10K pin measures 1-3/4'' x 3/4''. It features a 5mm stone which does have some smoothing. These pieces have beautiful Victorian details. The pin stick does not appear to be gold as is common with Victorian pieces.
