Circa 1880, these beautiful Victorian Aesthetic Silver earrings are one of our absolute favourite earrings at the moment! They're got all the things that we love most about antique jewellery, and that is they're pretty, they're unique and most importantly they're extremely easy to wear.
The craftsmanship and three dimensional design is lovely, and they look just like flowers, or perhaps stylized stars with rays of radiant light pouring out from every direction.
These lovely little Victorian Silver earrings maybe small, but what they lack in size they make up for in style!
We adore the playful scalloped edge and the textured mille-grain border, and the way the light bounces of those spherical beads of Silver in the centre is just perfect!
Each earring features a dainty french hook so that it can hang delicately on the lobe, and it allows just enough wiggle room for them to sway ever so slightly as you move.
ERA: Victorian (1837-1901)
MEASUREMENTS: Each "star" is 16mm in diameter and 2mm thick.
The earrings measure 21mm from top to bottom if you include the ear wire.
MATERIALS: Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: None, tested as Sterling Silver
These lovely little antique drop earrings are just wonderful! There is no visible damage or wear and the earrings have been professionally sterilized for your safety. The pretty star or flower design is still perfect after all these years. There are no dings, pin-holes or warped sections of metal, and all the detail in the border is nice and crisp. Although we can't say for certain the earrings don't look like conversion pieces as the french hooks match well and appear to be original. A lovely gift is sure to get plenty of use!
Please note these earrings have a natural dark patina that has come with age. If you prefer the earrings to have a lighter and brighter look we are able to polish them lightly for you at no cost.
