ANTIQUE VICTORIAN ETRUSCAN DROP EARRINGS 18CT GOLD CIRCA 1880
These magnificent Antique Victorian Etruscan drop earrings have been commissioned in 18ct Yellow Gold as part of the Etruscan Revival. They feature an upper section consisting of an ornate double knot design and follow down to a beautiful engraved dropper.
Etruscan revival pieces were crafted in the mid-1800s when ancient Etruscan jewellery was unearthed in tombs outside of Rome beginning a fascination with the style and giving birth to these beautiful pieces which were fashioned using the same ancient techniques.
A wonderful pair of earrings which display the stunning design and craftsmanship of the time.
