SOLD Victorian 15ct Gold Carnelian Torpedo Earrings
A stunning pair of torpedo earrings from the late Victorian period, c1880. The earrings have beautiful carnelian torpedo drops that have been set in 15ct gold mounts. They have the lovely decoration of three gold rings towards the bottom of the earrings; a beautiful addition that really gives these earrings an alternative edge from other earrings of their type. To the top of the earrings are two little seed pearls set in a target design, finishing the earrings perfectly. These earrings probably started life with screw back fittings and have been altered expertly. They now have 9ct gold shepherds hooks.
