Antique Victorian Girandole earrings. 18 carat Gold and turquoise. Made in France circa 1890.

Measure approx. 2 3/8 inches long. Weigh 11.2 grams.

Earrings go through ears from the back as is typical of antique French earrings. The surmounts/upper sections can be separated and worn alone by day for a simpler look. Surmount in the form of a flower - slightly stylized fleur-de-lis. Tops suspend bows, molded with pleats and folds and set with a cabochon turquoise in the middle of the knot. From these are 3 elongated leafy drops, with the same folds and pleats as the bow above. They, in turn suspend turquoise encrusted drops - the sides each like a double sun and the longer, central drop, in the form of a lyre with a tiny flower at the bottom. The backs have secure metal work supports that make the earrings more sturdy.

Hallmarks include the French eagle for a minimum of 18k (The earrings look as though they could be higher k).

Very good condition. No damage/restoration found.
