Dainty Victorian Etruscan Revival Orb Earrings
* * SOLD * *
A sweet pair of Victorian era orb earrings, modeled in 15k yellow gold and decorated with applied wirework, in the Etruscan style. This delicate twisted wire decor presents as a somewhat unruly, confetti-like collection of apostrophes, populating the surface of each orb— they are cheerful and casually arranged, and the variousness of this application draws attention to the earrings' hand-made nature! These dainty orbs hang from close-fitting, locking kidney wires. They are capped, at the base, with a high-polished gold bead. The orbs are finished with a vibrant, high-karat bloom. These earrings are unusual for their diminutive size. They are lightweight and perfect for frequent wear.
Total drop measures approx 22.8 mm (just under 1"); orb measures approx 8.7 mm (about 1/3").
