Victorian Drop Earrings With Leaf Design
- Source: eBay
Here we have a pair of very old drop style earrings for pierced ears. They feature a leaf pattern with small pearls at the bottom. The earring has a shield type motif at the top and a hooked earring wire is affixed to the back. The metal is yellow, pink and green toned. I believe they are gold plated, and there are some signs of wear as you would expect for earrings this old. The back of one has been repaired at the top, nothing that visibly spoils the look of the earrings. They are nicely detailed. Length is 1 1/8", width is 7/16".
These earrings could be vintage Black Hills Gold but I cannot find a stamp on them.�They are gold plated not gold filled, sorry for the error. I just want to mention that these are very old earrings and the older patina is evident. I do not clean this type of earring as most people want these in as is condition. They have wear commensurate with age.
