Circa 1870s, 18k, France. These magnificent antique earrings feature sumptuous gold work set with fiery garnet carbuncles. The look is vintage chic at its Arch Victorian best. Handmade and one-of-a-kind, these would have been very fashionably baroque revival 150 years ago. Today, they are an antique find that adds character, soul, charm, and variety to contemporary looks. Meticulously made, these Victorian one-of-a-kind earrings are in excellent condition.

Stone Details: The Garnet cabochons, or carbuncles as they were called, are foil-backed to enhance their fiery appearance. Today, stones of this color often referred to as "Bohemian Garnets" are rare.

Remarks from Lawrence Jeffrey: “To wear history is a marvelous feeling. To find relevant beauty from a century and a half ago a marvel. To make a chic fashion statement grounded by stunning jewels from the 19th century… there are no words …you are the picture …you are electricity … it is a delight to live in such a moment.”
