About

A pair of early Victorian Micromosaic earrings decorated with the classic symbol of peace and love, the "Dove and Olive Branch" motif. This historic symbol is finely crafted in micromosaic on a pair of rare micromosaic antique earrings.

Most importantly, however, the design and color combination utilized creates a chic and elegant look that is extremely magnetic in person. One can't take their eyes off this unusual and attractive pair of earrings made over 150 years ago!
