So elegant and refined, these Victorian era antique pique drop earrings are just so elegant and are destined to be admired from near or far.
Dating from the 1870's the detail in each earring is superb as is the condition of each earring allowing them to still be worn on a daily basis.

Piqué jewellery is a style of jewellery that is simply like no other and can never be reproduced today. Piqué (pronounced pee-kay) is a technique where the tortoiseshell was inlayed with gold or silver or sometimes both in a wonderful intricate style that combines so well in colour when set into the chocolate brown of the tortoiseshell.

The detail of the inlay is not just on the front as it goes all the way around and from the very top of the shepherd hook to the bottom, this distance measures a very elegant 5.3cm in length and are sure to be noticed and admired whether they are worn day or night.
These are such an elegant pair of antique pique earrings and are sure to be treasured and loved no matter the occasion or where they are worn.
