Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1870

A fine example of antique Etruscan Revival jewellery, these earrings date from the 1870s - each one set with six turquoise cabochons and a central rose cut diamonds. They features excellent Etruscan goldwork: applied ropework and pomels, gold twist borders, and a star setting to the centre. They're modelled in 9 karat gold throughout.

The Etruscan Revival movement was influenced by jewellery found in 19th Century excavations of tombs in Pompeii and Herculaneum, which caught the imagination of the Victorian high society.
