Antique turquoise drop earrings

Not only will these earrings be noticed from near or far, but many will be surprised when they learn that they are over 150 years old and are still in wonderful condition in a style that will always be admired.

Made in 15 carat gold in the mid-Victorian era of the 1870's, they measure a very elegant 5cm in length and have such a delicate sway to them that will draw any eye in the room to them. With a beautiful scalloped base with an incredible floral design that rolls over the top so gracefully, there is a cluster of turquoise set at the bottom which adds a perfect contrast in colour to the earrings, which are then finished off with the elegant tear drop section at the bottom.

Set on long and secure shepherd hooks, these earrings are destined to become a family treasure to be passed down through the generations.
