This pair of earrings is in very good condition, minimal wire work deficient consistent with age and use. Unmarked tested as 18ct.
A sophisticated pair of Etruscan Revival earrings, made in the mid-Victorian period. During the mid-nineteenth century, new archaeological discoveries led to a widespread interest in the jewellery styles of the ancient world. These lovely earrings emulate ancient Etruscan design with their use of bright yellow gold, delicate filigree work, and sculptural form. Bold and tasteful, these earrings would complement a cocktail dress beautifully.
