Victorian Moonstone & Pearl Flower Form Drop Earrings
* * SOLD * *
A very sweet pair of Victorian-era, flower-form drop earrings, modeled in 14k rosy yellow gold, whose central elements are a pair of glowing, white, cat's eye moonstones. These moonstones have a strong, vertical eye, that shifts across the stone-face, with movement. Each is held in ten, claw-like prongs, where it is surrounded by a bevy of "petals," each set with a small, silvery-white seed pearl. These earrings thread back-to-front, catching in a small, hidden notch at the top of the flower. Small earrings from this era are always special— we love these especially for their soft vibe and very precise manufacture. The moonstones themselves are magical!
Total drop measures approx 20.2 (approx 3/4") x 12.3 mm; moonstones (2) measure approx 6.5 x 5.5 mm; pearls (20) measure approx 1.5 - 1.8 mm.
