A charming pair of gold key earrings from the Victorian (ca1880) era! These petite earrings have a lovely 3-dimensional design crafted in vibrant 10kt yellow gold. Each earring dangles a miniature pair of matching keys, which are soldered together at the top, keeping them in a permanently overlapped position. The antique keys are etched with a sunburst motif around the handle, and have a boxy roman key design at the base. Completing the design are simple earring wires with small gold ball toppers. A delightful everyday accessory, these Victorian earrings would make a fun addition to any jewelry collection!
Measurements: The earrings hang 1" long, including the wires. Each double key charm measures approximately 1/2" tall and wide.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting or earring wires, which are secure and intact. There is a natural patina on the surface of the gold, which is normal for antique jewelry and adds to the depth of the etched design.
