We have been left speechless by this pair of antique Platinum & 18ct Gold "Forget-Me-Not" Turquoise drop earrings! With blatant elegance and undertones of playfulness, we will envy the one who gets to call this pair 'mine'.
The flowers which are each made up of four smooth Turquoise cabochons and one dainty, glimmering Diamond are Forget-me-nots, symbolic of true love and a popular motif in antique jewellery. This glorious pair of Edwardian earrings have a lovely dangle and are sure to sit beautifully with an up-do!

VERY GOOD. This pair of antique Platinum & 18ct Gold "Forget-Me-Not" Turquoise drop earrings are in very good condition! The Turquoise stones are simply divine, they're smooth, securely set and feature a little Diamond in her centre. We think the backs of these earrings were most likely screw backs, as was the fashion at the time, but they've been replaced with solid 15ct Gold wires for ease and comfort of wear.
