Story

The lyre form of earrings has its beginnings within the tenets of classicism favored by generations of jewelers from the Georgian through the Edwardian eras hearkening back to the 18th century!). The sentiments of the design embodied the symmetry and fluidity so highly prized.

Here Victorian sensibilities include additional elements of archaeological revival and the triumvirate of the three drop girandole. Each 14k rose gold earring is set with four (4) old mine cut diamonds with a total estimated weight of .30 carats (I-L color; SI1 clarity). The three part earring is articulated and a perfect medium length.

Date: Circa 1870.
