Fashioned of old, these original mid Victorian hoop earrings have a captivating historic aura. In the style of the ancient finds from tombs in Italy and recreated by jewellers all over the Continent, they capture a moment in time. A gentle patina has developed over the years, and their quiet existence is quite touching. With fine 9ct Gold wires, the body of the earrings is Gold cased meaning a fine layer of 9ct Gold over a body of brass or other base metal, they are a few tiny dinks which in our opinion just add to their antique charm. They measure 2.5cm from the top of the wire.
