A pretty pair of Victorian rose gold, yellow gold and silver inlay pique earrings hand crafted in circa 1870. The obelisk shaped pique drop earrings, beautifully inlaid with stylised flower motifs, tiny dots and tendrils. The metals used are rose gold, yellow gold and silver. These Victorian earrings would have been handmade during the mid-Victorian period (1860-1870). A skilled occupation which had its origins when the Huguenots escaped from France to England in the 17th Century where their craftsmanship spread. Very pretty earrings and light to wear and the detailing is seen from all sides. They have the original hook wires.
