Victorian Grand Tour 15K Gold, Pearl & Lava Girandole Earrings


Shipping to United States: Free

A nice pair of mid-Victorian earrings worked in chocolate brown lava set with pearls in 15K yellow gold. The earrings are designed as two acorns flanking an elongated amphora form surmounted by a lady’s head. The girandole arrangement (three elements suspended from a single element at the top) is relatively rare among lava earrings. Archaeological Revival lava jewelry from Pompeii was a very prized souvenir of a wealthy visitor’s Grand Tour through Italy due to the ongoing excavations there that accelerated in the late 1860s. The small pearls are natural and have excellent color and luster. Tested and guaranteed 14K gold.
