Early Victorian Paste Earrings

Early Victorian Paste Earrings

C.1840. A beautiful pair of early Victorian paste earrings with new 15k gold ear wires. Set as closed backs, the lovely design of a swirl with a center flower looks very pretty when worn. Most likely, the earrings were converted from buttons. A few paste stones may have been early replacement. Overall earrings are in great condition. 

Diameter: Approximately 20mm
