The Story

A striking pair of antique drop earrings made during the Victorian era. They're filled to the brim with 72 turquoise cabochons in varying colors of green to blue-green. Accenting the colorful center circles are 8 Old Mine Cut diamonds, 16 for the pair, for a total diamond weigh of approximately 1 carat.

All of the stones are set in period perfect sterling silver with just the perfect amount of patina to make them pop. The lever hooks are done in 14k yellow gold giving them a great bi-color feel.

Measuring 1 inch in height, they're a gorgeous future heirloom to love and wear forever. Victorian pavé pieces like this are becoming increasingly rare, so make sure not to hesitate if they're on your jewelry bucket list.
