victorian pavé turquoise, garnet, and pearl 14k gold earrings

Sold

The Story

A striking pair of dangle earrings made during the Victorian era.  Filled to the brim with 275 antique turquoise cabochons, the color of these earrings is outstanding.  The top round portion features a rose cut garnet surrounded by a circle of seed pearls and finishes with two rows of turquoise.  Hanging from the circles are larger hearts filled with turquoise pavé stones in all different green-blue hues. 

All the stones are set in period perfect sterling silver with just the perfect amount of patina while the backs have an applied piece of 14 karat yellow gold.

While the top portion is set stationary, the bottom tier moves independently giving them tons of movement.  

Measuring 2 inches in total length, they hang on new 14k yellow gold french hooks.  Gorgeous and substantial, these are a treasured future heirloom to love and wear forever.
