SOLD Victorian 15ct Gold Coral Acorn Earrings
The sweetest little acorn earrings from the Victorian period, c1890s. The earrings have little coral drops that are housed in high carat gold settings, testing as around 15ct gold. The gold settings have an Etruscan Revival feel about them with their applied gold wirework details. The coral is a lovely orange colour and looks beautiful against the gold. The acorns hang on little gold chains and have replacement 9ct gold hooks. These earrings likely started life as screw backs and the hooks have been added later.
