Victorian White Coral and Garnet Floral Earrings

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A pair of white coral earrings, splashed with the red of garnets, is perfect for the bride or wedding party. There is harmony in the appearance of these ear drops. No one material or color outshines the other. The gold with a rose tinge encircles the garnets, joins them in tone and forms a graceful wrap of wire and vine that securely encloses the closed flower bud. White coral, used in the Victorian period is not often seen today. It is whiter than ivory. It is not heavy on the ear and adds a creative and personal touch for a day when something old anticipates something new which is true of the wedding day as well as of any day in a life. Dating to c.1860, collectable earrings will always be jewelry to appreciate through the years. The condition is perfect.
