Victorian Silver Coin Earrings, Dated 1897
A pretty pair of coin earrings with a little difference. The earrings are made from silver (0.917 Silver rather 0.925 sterling silver) with sterling silver hooks. They are a pair of coins from the colonial era and are from India, dated 1897. The back side of the earrings says 'Two Annas', which was equal to 1/8 of a rupee and to the front, Queen Victoria is pictured with the words, Victoria Empress around the edge. This was the title she was given in India in 1877. I have not seen this particular coin as earrings before and it is lovely to find a little difference from the norm.
