Antique Victorian Earrings Gold Turquoise (4378)


Antique VIctorian girandole earrings.

18 carat Gold and turquoise.

Made in France circa 1890.

Measure approx 2 3/8 inches long.

Weigh 11.

2 grams.

Earrings go through ears from the back as is typical of antique French earrings.

The surmounts/upper sections can be seperated and worn alone by day for a simpler look.

Surmount in the form of a flower - slightly stylised fleur de lis.

Tops suspend bows, moulded with pleats and folds and set with a cabochon turquoise in the middle of the knot.

From these are 3 elongated leafy drops, with the same folds and pleats as the bow above.

They, in turn suspend turquoise encrusted drops - the sides each like a double sun and the longer, central drop, in the form of a lyre with a tiny flower at the bottom.

The backs have secure metal work supports that make the earrings more sturdy.

Hallmarks include the French eagle for a minimum of 18k (the earrings look as though they could be higher k).

Very good condition.

No damage/restoration found.

Condition: used
