Victoria - Lapis lazuli & diamond 18k Platinum Victorian earrings. The exquisite earrings are crafted from 18k yellow gold, tested and appraised. Featuring genuine natural lapis lazuli, genuine natural old mine cut diamonds, fine quality and exquisite styling. The earrings are for pieced ears, featuring a shepherds hook for easy insertion. Expertly attached gold bezels with delicate detail around the collet are featured with a delicate chain soldered onto another diamond bezel and a beautiful rich deep blue lapis lazuli. These earrings originally had screw backs for non pierced is, however for comfort and practicality the screw backs were melted down and made into wonderful shepherd hooks. How wonderful that the originals backings were recycled and crafted by a master goldsmith into the making of these shepherd hooks ( shepherd hooks were also used in Georgian and Victorian jewelry, so these are fitting for the era) . These Victorian treasures look beautiful when worn, truly a very special gift or addition for any fine jewelry collection.
