This gorgeous pair of kinetic, 12 karat rose gold and black enamel earrings from the Victorian era feature sinuous lines, organic motifs and romance. Their architectural design give these earrings a symmetry that is quite attractive. The curling lines against the hard edges are reminiscent of architectural revival jewelry. The earrings showcase some fantastic details, such as black enamel work, hand-etching, and bright-cut work. These kinetic earrings have a lovely swing to them, with the dangling center leaf moving freely under the curling moon form just above.
Each earrings is approximately 1 1/2 inches by 1 inch wide. Each earring contains 3 tiny detail seed pearls. The earrings reveal the fine craftsmanship of the Victorian era and when turned around you can see some of the hand-made aspects of the earrings. Today, the enamel on these earrings is in good condition and the earrings wear nicely. Together, these earrings weigh 7 grams. Although these earrings are unmarked I have acid-tested them as 12kt gold.
