Victorian Revival 18kt Micro Mosaic Butterfly Stud Earrings
A gorgeous and unique pair of Victorian Revival micro mosaic earrings from the Retro (ca1940) era! These lovely earrings are crafted in vibrant 18kt yellow gold and each adorn an exceptional micro mosaic design that rests within an ornate round setting. The mosaic image features tiny tiles of vividly colored glass that have been hand set to form an beautiful butterfly. The lovely insect displays a variety of matte and iridescent shades, including orange, green, gold, and red hues and rests on a bed of white mosaic tiles lined with a delicate black border, allowing the colorful image to come to life. The bezel set design is surrounded by a graduated double twisted rope border, adding wonderful texture to the gorgeous piece. Resting on the back is a 14kt gold-filled earring post and back, stamped with a "14KT GF" purity mark besides a maker's mark. A stunning pair of unique everyday earrings, these studs would make a perfect addition to any collection!
Measurements: Each earring measures approximately 5/8" in diameter, and is about 1/8" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the yellow gold setting. All of the tiles within the mosaic design appear to be intact and secure, except for one tiny missing tile, which is not visible when worn due to the size and does not detract from the overall beauty of the design.
