Authentic antique earring - English work of the second half of the nineteenth century. Our opinion: In perfect condition, these antique earrings are light as a feather and in perfect condition, which is rare for hair jewelry. The story of this jewel: It is in 1854 that a mother will recover the first locks of her daughter's hair and entrusts them to her jeweler for him to make these lovely earrings. She gave them to her daughter a few years later and was passed from generation to generation.
