Victorian 15ct Gold Mesh & Pearl Drop Earrings
A pretty pair of earrings made from components from the late Victorian period, c1890s. These earrings have lovely and unusual drops that have been crafted out of gold wire to form a sort of pear shaped mesh design. To the bottom of these hang little baroque pearl drops and the top is an added component from the same era. A little trefoil of gold with three split pearls. Though these did not seem to start life together they are a lovely marriage and make a beautiful pair of earrings.
