SOLD Antique 9ct Gold Faceted Glass Acorn Earrings
A wonderful pair of earrings from the early part of the 20th Century. The earrings have stunning carved glass acorns as their centrepiece. The acorns are made from clear glass and have been beautifully carved to make the 'cup' of the acorn, with the actual nut being faceted. The beautiful earrings catch the light perfectly and are not too heavy in the ear. They make an incredible statement and have 9ct gold hook fixtures with faceted glass beads at the base. These earrings came to me as is, though they have been made up using antique components.
