You would be forgiven for thinking these beautiful aquamarine drop earrings are Victorian through and through but they were hallmarked in 1971 so they are a fab example of Victorian Revival jewellery.
For pierced ears, these elegant earrings are crafted in buttery yellow 9ct gold in an elegant neoclassical Etruscan design and feature deep oval drops that are set with icy blue aquamarine gemstones.
The drops are attached to gold continental ear fittings with decorative arrowhead finials. These super quality hooks are hinged forming a lever back that locks keeping the earrings safely attached to your ear lobes. Both the hooks and drops are stamped 9ct gold.
A beautiful pair of feminine Victorian inspired earrings in March's birthstone, they have lovely movement and sparkle when worn and are eminently wearable!
