Very lovely antique Victorian cut steel twisted bead tassel earrings with a beautiful gold fill Victorian top piece and ear wire section.
Cut steel jewelry is very collectible and not easy to find it in good condition. Most was made in England and France.
The process of hand-crafting and stringing these faceted micro beads was extremely laborious and time-consuming.
Care should be taken to keep them dry, as cut steel jewelry is susceptible to rust., which is why the jewelry is more difficult to find today.
The cut steel jewelry process dates back to at least the sixteenth century and became the height of fashion in the eighteenth (Georgian) and nineteenth centuries (Victorian).
Each earring has 7 tassels, and the beads still glisten in candlelight as when they were created and in modern lights too. The tassels move freely which make them especially striking when worn.l
