Victorian "Day and Night" Etruscan Carved Amber Gold Earrings

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A gorgeous pair of amber earrings from the Victorian (ca1880) era! Each of these earrings has a convertible "day & night" design that incorporates a teardrop base and faceted bead topper. The 18kt yellow gold Etruscan setting combines with rich, vibrant orange amber for a breathtaking result! The removable surmounts have hinged gold lever back wires that clasp in the front in a traditional Victorian fashion. An Etruscan beadwork cap rests at the top and bottom of each bead. The dangling teardrop links are substantial in size and swing from a decorative Etruscan attachment. Strands of fine gold chain link to a wirework cap at the top, giving wonderful texture and movement to the design. The teardrop base can be easily removed and re-attached, allowing the earrings to merge seamlessly between a simple "day" style, or a more dramatic "night" design. No matter how they are worn, the earrings make a beautiful statement and would compliment any Victorian collection!

The earrings hang approximately 2 1/8" in total length. The removable surmounts are 3/4" tall from the top of wire to the base of the bead, which is 11mm in size. The dangling base hangs 1 1/2" long (including the chain attachments) and measures 5/8" wide and thick at the teardrop base.
