Victorian Buckle Motif Drop Earrings

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Hand made of 15 karat yellow gold, these “buckle motif” earrings are the ideal size for daily wear, yet could transition without effort to evening. Queen Victoria would have approved, as she was a fan of jewelry decorated with this theme. They measure 2.25 inches long and offer a lovely combination of golden orbs, detailed geometric engraving and a sweeping double hoop design, all buckled together!
