SOLD: Victorian garnet earrings, circa 1880

Ask a question

These plump mid-Victorian garnet earrings epitomise what I love about English jewellery from between 1860 and 1885.

They’re old but not fussy. They’re beautifully finished on the back. And they’re handcrafted using high-quality materials – you won’t find garnets of such saturated colour and wonderful clarity today.

The buttery 15-carat gold has its original matte finish.

The simple pattern of gold balls around the oval garnets is deceptively simple. In between there is rope work and a further band of gold, adding subtle texture.

Importantly, the earrings’ tops echo the drops.

And these jewels are in immaculate condition, too.


• Handmade in 15-carat yellow gold
• Set with four cabochon garnets
• Approximately 3.4cm long (not including hooks), 1.6cm wide
• Weight is 9.5 grams
• In excellent antique condition
• Will come in a Karen Deakin gift box (the antique boxes are not for sale)

Please examine the photographs carefully – they form part of the description.

I’d be very happy to send more information and images. Layaway available.
