SOLD Victorian 18ct Gold Perpignan Garnet Flower Earrings
A beautiful pair of earrings from the mid Victorian period, c1870s. The earrings are made in the shape of flowers and are 18ct gold with 14kt gold hooks. They are set throughout with beautiful perpignan garnets, so called due to their familiar rose cut appearance with facets to the surface. The garnets are a lovely deep red colour with hints of purple and are set in closed back settings. The earrings are a lovely size in the ear and the gems catch the light beautifully.
