Victorian Etruscan Revival Earrings
ABOUT THESE EARRINGS
Gold was a scarce metal for the Etruscans and so they made the most of what they had to craft jewelry ornamented with exquisite decoration. These light and lovely Victorian Etruscan revival earrings, expertly hand fabricated in 15ct. yellow gold (hence of British origin), circa 1875 are an excellent representation of the Etruscan techniques. Tiny gold spheres (granulation) and finely twisted gold wire embellish the beautifully shaped drops that swing from French wires, creating another ravishing must-have pair for your gold earring collection.
