ANTIQUE VICTORIAN SCOTTISH SILVER JASPER CARNELIAN EARRINGS CIRCA 1860
These early Victorian drop earrings are beautiful examples of the Scottish jewellery which was popular during this period.
Scottish jewellery was endorsed by Queen Victoria as it became a souvenir of her frequent trips to Scotland and her Scottish Castle Balmoral from the mid-1800s.
The two leaves that crown the piece are green Jasper, with an orange Carnelian teardrop descending. They are modelled in silver and fitted with shepherd hook wires.
A pair of beautiful and utterly unique historic earrings.
