Victorian Era Turquoise Forget Me Not Drop Earrings with Stars in 14k Gold

A sweet pair of Victorian-era drop earrings, modeled in 14k yellow gold, whose central element is flower-like cluster of six green turquoise cabochons, each with a tiny, silver, diamond-set star at its center. These clustered, turquoise forget-me-nots are held in smooth bezels, where they are framed by the larger, scalloped, flower-like body of the earring. Those broad gold bodies are decorated with smooth and twisted wire work details. Earwires are latching shepherd’s hooks. We love the deep, original patina these earrings retain, and the symbolic potential in the little stars and flowers! These earrings are perfect for (thoughtful) frequent wear.
