Victorian English 12kt Love Knot & Twisted Rope Anchor Earrings
A fantastic pair of anchor earrings from the Victorian (ca1880) era! Crafted in 12kt rose gold, these English earrings have a strong nautical design. At the top are romantic love knot surmounts, with simple gold wires attached to the back. Dangling freely below are 3-dimensional anchors, complete with twisted gold rope that wraps and coils around the surface. When worn, the earrings frame the face beautifully and swing with lovely movement. They are comfortable and lightweight to wear, and would be right at home in any antique jewelry collection!
Measurements: The earrings hang 1 3/4" long (including the wires). Each individual anchor measures 1" tall, 5/8" wide at the base, and about 1/8" thick. The love knot surmounts measure 3/8" in diameter.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the rose gold setting. The surmounts are securely attached, and the 3-dimensional details remain intact.
