Victorian 15k Gold Torpedo Earrings
DATE: Victorian, c.1870
This wonderful pair of torpedo earrings is modelled in rich 15k yellow gold; they feature a finely textured surface, with a repeating stylised leaf & branch motif. The wires were likely added later, with ball tops and applied leaves. The pair remain in remarkably good condition.
