ANTIQUE VICTORIAN ETRUSCAN KNOT EARRINGS 18CT GOLD CIRCA 1880
These fabulous Antique Victorian earrings have been modelled in 18ct Yellow Gold and represent the Etruscan Revival style. They each feature an upper gold sphere which leads down to a fabulous textured Lover’s Knot. Below this hangs a lovely embossed 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 and a stunning example of the style of the era.
