Antique Victorian 14k Enamel & Garnet Drop Earrings
Details: These are exquisite and ornate earrings. Deep and richly red cabochon garnets - in a lovely upside-down tear drop shape - are both bezel and prong set. The stones are framed at their base with scroll and ball gold metalwork. Above the stones the gold has been deftly crafted into an ornate scroll and floral motif with black enamel. The earrings are suspended from self-closure hooks.
Measurements: Overall drop 1 3/4" - 3/4" wide (at widest point).
Origin: English, c. 1860.
