Pique is where tortoiseshell was inlayed with gold and silver resulting in a truly fantastic type of jewellery that is not only like no other, but can never be reproduced today, and here are a pair of gorgeous Victorian era antique pique drop earrings that date from the 1870's. Click here to read a brief article on pique jewellery: https://kalmarantiques.com.au/articles/history-of-pique-jewellery/ These elegant earrings measure 45.3mm from the bottom to the top of the round piece at the top or 53.5mm to the very top of the shepherd hook. The design is so intricate and beautiful to admire as well as being very tactile and wonderful to touch. There really is nothing quite like pique jewellery and these earrings are a wonderful example that can so easily be worn all the time or for those special occasions. With the design carried around to the back as well, this shows just how much time and attention went into making these earrings, and no matter the time or occasion that these are being worn, there is little doubt that they will always be loved and admired.
