Victorian Opal Gold Drop Earrings


The ancient Greeks believed that opals gave their owners the gift of prophesy, guarded them from disease, and symbolized love and hope. And, these incredible Victorian button shaped bright blue opal earrings are the ultimate positive talisman. Looking like they were picked from the deep blue sea, the round azure colored opal gemstones are individually hand mounted in 14 karat rose gold and seductively hang from a gold wire. Each domed circle earring is approximately 7/8" in diameter and hang approximately 1" from the top of the gold wire. Circa 1875-1890.
