ABOUT THESE EARRINGS

Who needs gemstones and diamonds with you have super pretty, fancy earrings like these. These Etruscan Revival-style Victorian jewels (circa 1880) abound with beautiful details-- small gold spheres (a.k.a granulation), little twisted wire appliques in the shape of cute flowers, a cool pinwheel design, and two scrolls that look like tiny antennae. These delightful disks dangle from complementing ear wires and will easily become one of your go-to pairs of perfect earrings. Hand fabricated in 18K gold, most likely of British origin.

About Victorian Jewelry

The eclectic Victorians didn’t limit themselves when it came to motifs and themes—if it struck their fancy, they turned it into jewelry. Sweet and sentimental with a distinct romantic streak, Victorian gems expanded upon their Georgian predecessors. The array of styles that blossomed (sometimes quite literally) during this era endure to this day.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
