the story

Highly ornate, these 18k yellow gold earrings are divine! 

The bottom hanging portion are the oldest element.  Dating back to the Georgian era, circa 1820s-1830s, we believe them to be thread cannetille which were created from very fine threads of gold. Typically very lightweight, these are no exception.  Added later, a bale connects the top portion, most likely from the Victorian era.  They have great detail and match the bottom, older portions ornate feel.  They're hollow as well, keeping the whole piece light and easy to wear!

They're a great size and shape making them the perfect statement earring, and with their swinging movement, they catch the eye beautifully!  A perfect take on the all gold earring for those who love antique jewelry.
