Victorian Antique Pierced Earrings in Gold Fill. When searching for antique jewelry I have an ambitious wish list and at the top of it is affordable antique earrings. I am always thrilled to find them in pairs. This pair is beautifully crafted with spun wire work and Etruscan style bead work. The open work orb is about .5'' in diameter and suspend from a wonderful pierced wire. I am not sure if they are the original but it is sure that they display their drops beautifully. Each of the pierced findings is set with a solitaire marcasite. The lever back wires have an inner opening of about three eighths of an inch. They are in lovely condition with age appropriate wear.
