Victorian 14kt Yellow Gold Etruscan & Pearl Earrings
Delightful Etruscan earrings from the Victorian (ca1880) era! Each earring is made of vibrant 14kt yellow gold and is beautifully decorated with delicate Etruscan wirework and natural seed pearls. The earrings, which portray the shape of a gold ring, hang from a earring wire with a single concave shell-like surmount. With a 3-dimensional look, a gold bar rests horizontally across the ring which shares the same matching Etruscan design. Gold beadwork details the outside of each ring and 3 small seed pearls rest vertically in the center. The ornate Etruscan design covers almost the entire surface of each earring and gives them a classic Victorian look. Very light and comfortable to wear, these marvelous earrings would be great worn day or night.
Measurements: Each earring hangs approximately 1 3/8" long, 3/4" at the widest point and have a depth of a little less than 3/8".
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. There is no apparent damage to the gold, Etruscan wirework or beadwork detail or to the earring wires. All of the seed pearls are intact.
