Victorian 15kt Gold Etruscan Fan Earrings
Wonderful Etruscan earrings from the Victorian (ca1880) era! These lovely earrings are made 15kt yellow gold and detailed with fine Etruscan wire and bead work throughout. Each earring hangs from a simple 14kt gold wire which attaches to a shell-shaped surmount which has a concave face and a scalloped edge. Hanging from the topper is a gold link which has a fanned design and a cutout in the center. The surface of each is beautifully crafted and detailed and the earrings look stunning on. They have a wonderful design and would make a lovely addition to any collection!
Measurements: Each earring hangs approximately 1" long, is 5/8" at the widest point and has a depth of 1/8".Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is great. Unfortunately, there are a couple holes in the surface of the gold on one of the toppers which was probably made when attaching the earring wires. The wear is hardly noticeable when worn and looks more like a shadow. Besides this, there is no additional damage to the earrings or wires.
