1870s Cameo French Screwback Silver Earrings


These unique cameo earrings from 1870s are exceptionally beautiful! The intricate hand-carved cameo relief is lovely and elegant. The relief displays a visage of a woman in white with the classic pinkish shell backdrop. The detailed etchings show her face, hair, and a flower behind her ear. The cameo is set in a bezel frame with a fanciful border. The earring is made of sterling silver, which has aged over the years and has a dark gray/brown color. This could be high polished if desired. The earrings have a French screw back style, so they can most definitely be worn without pierced ears.
