About

Circa 1860s, 18k, France. These colorful antique chandelier earrings are fabulously chic. The garnets are an exceptional red and the elegant French form is visually seductive.

These circa 1860s earrings are in good condition with very minor expected wear on the reverse. A conversion to comfortable modern ear findings is noted.
