SOLD Victorian Pale Pink Paste Earrings
A beautiful pair of earrings from the Victorian period, c1860s. These earrings came to me as they are, though they probably started life as buttons and have been converted sympathetically into earrings. The paste has a beautiful pale pink hue that sets these earrings apart from others and they are a lovely cushion cut. They are set in sterling silver and have 9ct gold hooks. A simple design that makes a great statement in the ear.
