Story

Exquisite detail and remarkable craftsmanship mark these Victorian Grand Period earrings of 14k yellow gold. Revivalism and reinterpretation of ancient forms were rampant during this era. The past was the key to future design and this example brings that philosophy to light.

The two ball form of earrings is one of the more popular styles worn during the mid years of the Victorian era. Utilizing the hollow construction typical of the times, the surface of these 14k yellow gold orbs are embellished with superb ornate wire work and precise granulation (the application of small beads of gold to a surface).

These intricate patterns are constructed around a centered old mine cut diamond an estimated .05 carats creating a true sense of visual and textural interest. Although articulated, the earring is light and comfortable to wear and easily demonstrates its fine construction with every subtle movement.

Date: Circa 1870.
