Victorian Turquoise & Pearl “Day and Night” Earrings
DATE: Victorian, c.1880
These adorable antique earrings are likely of Swiss origin. They are formed from two-tone 14ct gold, and set with turquoise and pearls. Known as "Day and Night" earrings, the tops can be removed and worn on their own during the day, and the bottoms added at night to make more of a statement. Pretty bird, leaf, and flower designs dangle below a single pearls in scalloped settings.
