These antique Victorian earrings are absolutely fabulous, much more wonderful when wearing them than in my pictures. They were handmade by gold artisans of the past. The design is so charming, feminine, timeless, flattering for any complexion. They can be worn in absolutely any occasion without concerns about matching them to an outfit. They go with everything. The three interlocking hollow hoops are symbols of life in the past, present and future if we really want to search for symbolism in their design. The 9K repousse gold was decorated with some chased motif that is subtle and beautiful when checked attentively. The two parts, front and back, were soldered together. The hooks are original and they stay very well in the ear lobes.
* NOTE: There are some signs of age related wear on the back of the earrings where two of the hooks are close to each other. You cannot see them unless you check the back of the earrings at the mid section. I did not want to repair them because they are signs of how much these earrings were worn and loved for longer than a century. I worn them with great pleasure but they deserve more than my attention, during the current 21st century.
* The gold was acid testing 9K gold and there are no marks on the earrings.
* Measurements are 39 mm long x 15 mm wide x 7 mm thick (at the thickest).
* Weight is 4.2 grams.
* Condition is wonderful antique with a patina that is truly enjoyable. There are no dents or scratches.
