Antique Victorian Pique Earrings


Floral wreaths of gold accented with silver fill the rings of these luscious pique earrings. An oval of the same floral display is attached to the wire. We found these earrings in original condition with ear wires intact. The rings are connected. They are bordered top and bottom with gold. The reverse side is plain. To make these, the shell of a hawkbill tortoise is used. The jeweler incises the material and fills his incised pattern with gold and silver to the surface. This process known as pique work was done for a short period of time. Light in weight and spirit. The earrings are in top notch condition. European made c. 1870.
