Victorian Silver Rock Crystal Drop Earrings
A pretty pair of simple earrings from the Victorian period, c1880s. The earrings are made from sterling silver and have beautiful rock crystal orbs, also known as 'pools of light', set in their silver spectacle settings. The rock crystals have some lovely natural inclusions, though they mainly look like pretty little crystal balls for your ears. The earrings have post and butterfly fastenings and are a fairly petite size making them perfect for everyday wear.
