Original French Victorian era 18ct Yellow Gold Pearl Dormeuses Earrings with hinged hooks for pierced ears. Traditional style with small 2mm Pearl suspended just below edge of earlobe in an 8 claw Yellow Gold raised coronet with a gold bead fastener. This style looks so much more refined than a larger Pearl pinned directly onto the piercing with a butterfly clip but there is so much work involved in the construction of the setting and sleeper hinge that they are unlikely to re -enter the modern mainstream! Hallmarked with the French Eagle's Head for 18ct Gold and a makers heraldic style mark.Total height 15 mm, diameter of head 6 mm, height of coronet 5 mm. Internal measurements of fittings 12 x 7 mm so will fit medium - large adult - average modern size not particularly tiny for young girl! Very good quality Gold and Pearl Earring for any occasion.
