Antique 15K Gold Pendant Earrings
Dating from the 1870s, these antique pendant earrings are composed of 15K gold and were likely produced in England. Each is designed as a trefoil top with square studs suspending an oval boss surrounded by wirework, and framed by ruffled and lobed tiers, accented by radiating lines and spherules. Lightweight, gleaming, and reflective, these earrings' lively movement animates their complex curved and angled surfaces.
