Beautiful & Rare Antique Victorian Gold Pique Earrings / American-english-french

Early Victorian Gold Pique Earrings

Circa 1840's - 1860's

~ please scroll down for more photos ~ SIZE:

Height (including ear wire) - 1.5" (4 - (bottom ring) - 0.75" ( 2 cm) DESCRIPTION:

Beautiful and delicate early to mid Victorian gold pique earrings. The substance that the gold pique is set into is organic, not celluloid (please see photos).

These earrings are beautifully crafted and although they look like three rings and a chain link, they are actually two rings held together by a chain link. The bottom two rings are actually one piece.

Although I have not tested the gold pique, as the individual pieces are so small and delicate, it looks to be 14 karat gold and most probably is. These may have been made as mourning jewelry, but I'm not sure. They have riveted-on thin ear wires.

Circa 1840's to 1860's and may be French, English, or American. CONDITION:

Good condition, as shown in the photos and with the following noted:

One small individual gold pique piece missing, which can be seen on one earring at the top round ring, at the 9 0'clock position. Light wear overall. Several small chips and losses to the backs and sides (see photos of backs). Original ear wires in good condition. The organic material ha developed an nice aged patina.
