These earrings are an excellent example of how beautiful Victorian Paste earrings can be! This is a very fine pair with exceptional stones that have been beautifully cut and set by a true master craftsman. You don't come across antique earrings like this very often!
Each earring features a cluster that hangs below a delicate string of stones, allowing them to swing gracefully from your ears as you move about. The clusters have been thoughtfully planned out, with seven old-cut Paste stones surrounding a larger Rose Cut in the middle. They look just like flowers, which of course is the intention!
These remarkable Victorian earrings are perfect for an evening out. The antique rose cut Paste certainly has something special about it, and they catch the light beautifully. We love them, and we're sure you will too!
