Victorian 'Forget-Me-Not' Earrings

Victorian 'Forget-Me-Not' Earrings

C.1870. A very pretty pair of 'forget-me-not' earrings. A 'forget-me-not' flower and four leaves form each earring. These are made of turquoise and 15 carat gold including the ear wires.
These flowers once belonged to a brooch, and now have a life as earrings; we found them as earrings as they are. We don't often go for converted pieces unless they are finely done, and make sense. These earrings fit into all those categories. 
The turquoise flower petals are beautifully saturated blue color, and the four leaves have brushed texture in gold. These earrings are light, and they hang beautifully. Overall in great condition. 

Total Drop: Approximately 34mm or 1.34"  (including the front wire)
