Etruscan Delicacy - Victorian 9K Etruscan Revival Carved Cameo Conch Shell Earrings. These lovely earrings are crafted from 9K solid yellow gold, tested and confirmed. Featuring 2 genuine carved conch shell cameos, Victorian Etruscan Revival styling, and quality gold-work. The cameos in these earrings are a beautiful pale pink and white colour, displaying beautiful busts of hand carved Victorian ladies. The cameos are expertly set in bezels with a very fine rope design and surrounded by an exquisite frame of delicate detailing of gold bobbles ( a characteristic of Etruscan jewelry seen in Victorian Etruscan Revival pieces). The surmounts are just lovely, featuring delicate flowers, which have double chain attachments for a fantastic design and nice movement. These earrings have original screw backs for non pierced or pierced ears. They have been left in their original condition, however they can be changed over to shepherd hooks or posts if desired. These Victorian earrings are very special, so feminine and elegant, truly a perfect gift or addition to any fine jewelry collection.
