Original French Victorian Earrings in 18ct Rose-Yellow Gold with hinged front-fastening Dormeuses fittings. Enchanting delicate Regency type design featuring a raised scalloped lace edged rosette with arched ribbon ends above a plain polished platform. A small seed Pearl is claw set to centre. Hallmarked with the regional French Horses Head for 18ct Gold. Diameter of head 10 mm.
Total height of fittings 12mm. These Earrings look so ethereal and are very light but their is some hidden strength in a rounded edge to the platform and support strut to the reverse. The inner hinges measure 12 x 7 mm so are best suited to a small earlobe, but they do fit my medium size as on photo. These Earrings have been stored safely for many years in Nice and avoided the accidental damage that has sadly sent so many to the scrap pile beyond reshaping!
