About

Circa 1880s, 14k, Italy. These antique micro-mosaic earrings are stylish examples of Victorian archeological revival jewelry. Their colorful design, along with playful movement and graceful long lines, give these earrings a matchless vintage chic look. Beautifully made in fourteen-karat yellow gold, the tesserae are bright and the mosaics in very good condition.

Remarks from Lawrence Jeffrey: “Classic, chic, signature, familiar, unique… these earrings can mix with bohemian, dress up jeans and heels, or accentuate the chic of a cocktail dress. I love Victorian aesthetic jewelry - it is visually robust and stylishly fresh.”
