Victorian 15kt Turquoise Etruscan Hoop Earrings
Beautiful turquoise hoop earrings from the Victorian (ca1880) era! These exquisite earrings are crafted in vibrant 15kt yellow gold and display a delicate Etruscan ball and wirework design on the front and side of the hoops. Lining the front of each are seven pyramidal cut, vibrant blue turquoise stones which look gorgeous paired with the rich, yellow gold. The earrings fasten with a hinged wire closure at the top and are wonderfully lightweight, making them comfortable to wear. The earrings display exceptional artistry and would look elegant worn day or night!
Measurements: Each earring hangs slightly shorter than 3/4" long, is 1/4" wide, and 1/8" in depth.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting, Etruscan wirework, or to the earring wires, and all turquoise stones are intact. There is a natural patina along the surface in various places of both earrings, creating a bit of inconsistency in the gold color, however, this does not detract from the beauty of the earrings.
