Here are a pair of antique earrings that date from the Victorian era and are truly divine and destined to always be admired each and every time that they are worn.
Made in the 1870's in 18 carat yellow gold, the design takes the traditional drop form that is sometimes seen in Victorian earrings and makes them even more special by having the most incredible fine wire work design that comes out from each side. This fine and intricate detail is just astonishing to admire and elevates them to a whole new level.
Measuring 20mm wide by 51.6mm in length, they are fitted on lovely long shepherd hooks that are both secure and allow the main section of the earrings to sit perfectly below the ear lobe.
These earrings are just sensational and will be perfect for that special occasion with that special dress.

When was the Victorian era?
The Victorian era was from 1837 until 1901. Until Queen Elizabeth II, Queen Victoria was the longest ruling monarch in British history. Queen Victoria was influential in not just politics, but also fashion. After Prince Albert died in 1861, Queen Victoria went into a perpetual state of mourning. During this time until her death, she wore only black, and popularised mourning jewellery.
