Victorian 14kt Hand Carved Lava Cameo Earrings
A wonderful pair of lava cameo earrings from the Victorian (ca1880) era! These lovely earrings are made of oval shaped lava cameos and set within a 14kt yellow gold bezel setting. The lava has an earthy tan hue and is intricately hand carved to depict a woman's face, complete with a floral headdress, swirls of curled hair and delicate facial features. The earrings hang from modern clasped gold earring wires which are attached to a decorative surmount. The carved cameos show excellent craftsmanship and the earrings look striking when worn. They would make a very special addition to any jewelry collection!
Measurements: The earrings hang approximately 1 3/8" long, are 5/8" at the widest point and have a depth of 1/4" at the thickest point.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the carved lava or to the gold setting and the wires are intact.
