Victorian Fringe Pendant Earrings
Created in the mid 1860s to 1870s, these fringe earrings, likely of English origin, are composed of 18K gold. Each is designed as a smaller sphere suspending a shaped element with abstract engraving bound by a band with applied spherules, and a larger orb with flexible tapering fringe. With their strong geometric elements and intriguing movement, these warm gold pendant earrings enliven the face with their antique-to-modern beauty.
