Clearly of the Georgian era in every regard, this pair of 15k gold earrings is balanced, long, regal and feminine.
A take on a version of a torpedo earring, the name is derived from its overall shape. The torpedo earring rates as one of the most worn and desirable for the period from 1830s through 1840s.
Created in four parts, the surmount's form is based upon a flower design. Each of the successive elements, whether tapering out or in, are capped and finished with petals of gold that curl and hang down reminding one of fuschia flowers.
The widest of the four, the third dangle contains the grandest of the petals. Each drop's surface is wafer thin, created around open space to allow light to penetrate the surfaces.
Like spun straw, the color has hints of deeper gold with edges that reflect brighter highlights. Appearing grand, the earrings are light to wear yet give off a rich and ornate visual.
