Victorian Celtic Revival Enamel & Pearl Earrings
Queen Victoria reigned long and prospered during the mid to later years of the 19th century. During this time she became so enraptured with the Scottish Highlands that in 1847 she and her consort Albert purchased Balmoral Castle in Scotland. She spent much of her incumbency there as well as in England. As a consequence, Scottish and Celtic motifs incorporated into any number of items enjoyed their own long reign of popularity.
This pair of superb and meticulously constructed 15k yellow gold earrings demonstrates how the aforementioned symbols were integrated into jewelry of the era. A radiant intricate Celtic pattern adorns a round disc of gold. Surface texture galore, inlaid white enamel with a hint of very pale blue and a centered natural pearl (assumed to be natural due to age and examination) highlight and accentuate the design elements of this perfect pair of mid-length earrings.
