In the style of the Etruscan revival circa 1870's, inspired by the discovery of ancient tombs and artefacts in Italy, richly hand crafted archaeological styled jewellery was very popular amongst those who could afford it. The deeply hued oval high faceted Garnets to these historic drop earrings make a characteristically ancient design statement and contrast so strikingly with modern dress.
From the top of the wire they measure 3cm, and the pendant portion itself 2cm. All in 18ct yellow gold they have a time honoured allure which speaks of early civilisations. If you are interested in making an arrangement to pay in instalments please see our Layaway Terms here.
