Unusual Gold Victorian Revivalist Earrings

$4,250

About

Extremely unusual Victorian Earrings in the Archeological Revival style, constructed of a series of gold hoops in varicolored gold (green and pink), decorated with tiny shot work and flower heads. These are held in place by an engraved triangular "hinge" which also hides a smaller hoop floating inside the 3 exterior hoops. The hinge is attached to gold scroll work at the top of the earring where the ear wire is then attached. The hoops move independently of one another in an extremely unusual configuration and design. Much of the design is only seen from the side of the wearer or when the wearer moves. 1.5" high (without earwire), 1" long, .5" wide. 1850's USA. Excellent condition.
