Antique Cut Steel Victorian Bead Tassel EarringsAntique Cut Steel Victorian Bead Tassel EarringsAntique Cut Steel Victorian Bead Tassel Earrings

These dramatic antique tassel earrings feature hundreds of tiny faceted cut-steel beads. Each earring has 24 tassels of twisted cut-steel beads that dangle and provide movement so they catch the light.

The tassels hang from a larger cut-steel many faceted sphere, and the cut-steel studs on the ear wire have ~ 15 facets each

I noticed this gorgeous style has recently been the inspiration for new tassel earrings of faceted glass beads by Oscar de la Renta, but these are the real thing: cut steel beads from the mid-Victorian era.

What a phenomenal accessory.

Cut steel jewelry dates back to at least the sixteenth century and became the height of fashion in the eighteenth (Georgian) and nineteenth centuries (Victorian). The polished silvery-gray jewelry was made to imitate the glitter of diamonds and sparkle in candlelight.

Condition: Very Good, no rust, no repairs, twisted tassel strands are strung on thread, not wire.
