Victorian 14K Gold and Seed Pearl Lovers Knot Earrings


This is a fantastic pair of 14 karat yellow gold earrings, made in the Victorian Era and accented with a central seed pearl. They exhibit classic Etruscan Revival design elements. Each earring is constructed from two rolled tubes of gold, which are tied in a complex knot; symbolizing eternal love with no beginning and no end. At the center of the knot is a seed pearl inside of a gold diamond-shaped form. The two "ropes" of the knot are embellished with different textures, and color, adding complexity and detail to these earrings. One is a rose gold rope and the other has a textured, diamond pattern surface. They are 3/4 of an inch in size and feature a ver back safety back latch. They are sinuous in the snake like form. They date to the 1880's. Great condition for their age. They weigh 2.5 grams

Love these earrings! Lots of interest in a small size.

I love these lovers knot earrings! They are light and comfortable to wear, but quite sophisticated in a small package. I like the mix of rose and yellow gold and the single small shiny facet in each earring that gleams in the light and adds some sparkle. Really thrilled with these! The only (slight) problem is that they tend to tip forward and face slightly downwards, instead of remaining upright in my ear and facing out. I'm trying to think if I can fix this by adding rubber washers to the posts. But will happily wear these anyway. Very happy!
