Story

Stars and starbursts remained one of the more favored jewelry motifs throughout the Victorian era especially in the late 19th century. Quite dramatic in presentation, this 15k yellow gold earring appears simultaneously delicate yet rather substantial.

The two-part design creates an articulated pendant earring without overwhelming the contours of the face. A surmount set with a single natural saltwater half pearl (untested but guaranteed to be natural) suspends a magnificent eight ray starburst design decorated with an artistic array of twenty-five (25) natural saltwater half pearls.

Date: Circa 1880.
