Antique 14k Baroque Pearl and Emerald Earrings
These earrings are absolutely fascinating! They are like a taking a glimpse into the past when the intellectuals of the victorian era were intrigued and taken by the study of nature. The 14 karat gold mountings were handmade to accommodate the unique proportions of each pearl and emerald which were then linked vertically in an elegant and elongating style. The wires are hinged at the back, therefore they go through your ears "backwards"...very typical of victorian earrings.
They each measure 2-1/2" from the top of the wire to the base of the lowest hanging pearl. The emeralds are approximately 3/16" wide by 1/8" long
