Have you ever visited Brighton? If you get the chance, I highly recommend it. Go visit the Brighton Pavilion, a pleasure palace built by King George IV. The outside might look like a tiny Taj Mahal, but the inside is full on Chinese. Well, not real Chinese, really, but more like what the English in the 1820s thought Chinese interiors would look like. They really didn’t get it quite right, but it’s a marvel for the senses, so go anyway! And wear these earrings while you’re there, you’ll fit in just fine.
These wonderful Victorian silver earrings were hand crafted around 1880 in England. They have a nod to the Chinoiserie style that was in fashion in the late 1880s and yet they are decorated with forget-me-not flowers, showing their decidedly Victorian sentimentality. These lovelies measure 35 mm from top to bottom and 14.3 mm across and together they weigh 4 grams. They are unmarked but test as sterling silver.
Earrings like these were de rigor day-wear for the Victorian Lady, rock them alone or with a Victorian collar and locket and a bangle or two!
