Victorian Silver & Gold Overlay Rose Motif Drop Earrings

Sold

A pretty pair of Victorian silver earrings that were made circa 1880. They each have a rose motif with two colour yellow and rose gold overlaid. The rose symbolises an immortal love or a union that will never fade, even through time or death. This type of earring would originally have been worn as part of a set with a matching locket on a collar and bracelet, but these days that would look far too heavy all together so these earrings stand on their own and are really pretty on the ear.
