Victorian Pique Earrings Incised with Gold and Silver


Prisims of shell were carefully incised with flower forms that then were filled with silver and gold. This is delicate work that was performed by artists in the latter quarter of the 19th century, c. 1870. This art form is known as pique. It was done for a short period of the Victorian era most often in France and Russia and as there is no production today, The jewelry is desired by collectors as it is rare and beautiful. These are medium length earrings, wearable and very light in weight. The condition is perfect.
