Here’s a pair of sunny 15-carat gold earrings from about 1890, made for everyday wear.

Deeply dished sections radiate from the central sphere, embellished with granulation and filigree in the fashionable Etruscan Revival style of the mid to late 19th century.

The backs are closed, in typical English style – the small holes are there to prevent bursting when the backs and fronts are joined together.

Antique earrings frequently have replacement tops, something that affects their aesthetic and financial value. That’s not the case here – these tops are original to the earrings.


• Handmade in 15-carat yellow gold
• Approximately 23mm long (not including hooks), 17.5mm wide
• Weight is 3.7 grams
• In very good antique condition; the backs have been polished to a bright finish
• Will come in a Karen Deakin gift box (the antique box is not for sale)
• Note: some of the other jewellery is for sale separately (some has sold) – please get in touch if you’d like information about any of it

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

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