A beautiful pair of Victorian gold drop earrings. These earrings are made in the archaeological revival style, a style that became popular in the Victorian era as treasures of the ancient world were found in archaeological excavations. These earrings feature a pendulum drop in velvety yellow gold, embellished with twisted filigree wirework and micro granulation, both techniques used by ancient craftsmen. These sculptural earrings make a bold and sophisticated statement.
