Victorian 9kt Gold & Faceted Cut Crystal Earrings
Gorgeous cut crystal earrings from the Victorian (ca1880) era! These stunning earrings are comprised of two faceted crystal balls which connect to each other by 9kt gold links. Each crystal is hand faceted and graduate in size. Riveted into the center of the top ball is the 9kt gold earring wire. A post goes through the center of the ball and connects to a gold ring that rests at the top of the larger, bottom ball. An 'x' shape has been carved into the top of the bottom ball which makes it easy for the earrings to move easily and freely without excessive abrasion. The earrings look wonderful on and catch the light beautifully. They would make a perfect addition to any collection!
Measurement: The earrings hang a little less than 1 1/2" long, are 3/4" at the widest point and have a depth of 3/4".
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is great. There is some normal wear to the surface of the crystal which isn't noticeable when the earrings are worn. There is no damage to the gold wires.
