These early 20th century antique Silver Chrysoprase acorn earrings are such a charming pair! Inlaid with bewitching Green Chalcedony, these earrings are perfect for those who love cute kitschy and symbolic jewellery.
Acorns were widely used in Victorian and Edwardian pieces, due to their symbolism of growth, regeneration and new life. The fresh and vibrant hue of these Chrysoprase gems emphasise this, and these gems were often used to also symbolise new life and fertility.

VERY GOOD: These antique Silver Chrysoprase acorn earrings are in great condition. We have replaced the wires of these earrings and there is some tiny wear to the charming acorn engravings. Also, we do believe that these earrings were once part of a larger suite of jewellery, as per the fashion traditions of the time. Nevertheless, they are such a pretty pair, with chip-free secure Chrysoprase buds at the centre.
