Victorian Orb Drop Earrings with Applied Flowers
* * SOLD * *
A charming pair of Victorian era orb earrings, modeled in 14k gold and decorated with applied garlands of flowers. This linear arrangement of hand-pierced flowers lays at the meridian of each yellow gold orb, spanning its face on a softly diagonal path. The five and six-petaled flowers are rose gold; they are finished with both polished and stippled textures that create a darker and light pink hue. The tiny leaves in our flower garland are green gold. The orbs themselves are finished with a high-color bloom. The earwires, here, are our favorite variety— those trapped, locking, kidney-shaped marvels, that allow the orbs to swing gently side-to-side, beneath the earlobe. These earrings are the perfect size for everyday wear, and they are special enough for occasions! We love their very precise details, and their subtly contrasting colors and textures.
Total drop (including earwires) is approx 21.85 mm (about 9/10"); orbs measure approx 11.6 mm.
