Ask a question

These mid to late Victorian Bohemian garnet earrings started life as a pair of hat or cloak pins.

They’ve been rescued to live again as a stunning pair of fiery red ball earrings.

Please note that they’re weighty, given their original purpose. The hooks and caps are modern additions of nine-carat gold.

The garnets are very well cut and close set too, adding to the liveliness.

And the art that has gone into assembling the finely graduated gemstones is a joy to behold.
