English Victorian Onyx And Seed Pearl Earrings
ABOUT THESE EARRINGS
Curious and captivating. These Victorian earrings present glossy black onyx rectangular plaques, with concave centers, embellished with upside-down bright gold floral bouquets dotted with shimmering seed pearls. Set in bezels and held by striking split prongs, the dramatic drops attach to sweeping ear wires, while brightly burnished gold spheres add a final dash of detail. Decidedly different. Hand fabricated in 9K gold (hence of British origin), circa 1885, backs of earring settings are silver.
