English Early Victorian Gold and Garnet Pendant Earrings


A pair of English Early Victorian 18 karat gold earrings with garnet. The earrings have 6 Almandite cabochon garnets, also called carbuncles, with an approximate total weight of 5.80 carats. Tops detachable. Circa 1830-1840's. "Earrings...(of repoussé gold of elongated drop design) were usually made of foils of metal decorated en repoussé were extremely long. Their size and lightness were dictated by fashion and economic factors. The exaggerated horizontal lines of dress and hairstyle needed to be offset by long pendants, while at the same time the scarcity of precious metal encouraged the use of foil of embossed gold..." Mascetti and Triossi. Discussed and similar pictured in Earrings From Antiquity to the Present, by Daniela Mascetti and Amanda Triossi, Thames & Hudson, 1990, pages 71-72, 93. (MG #18216)
