Victorian 14k Yellow Gold Etruscan Acorn Earrings

$ 2,195
  • Description
    The acorn is a traditional good luck emblem that has long been considered a symbol of strength, prosperity, patience, renewal, and growth. These attributes are partially inspired by nature itself; a mighty oak tree grows from a tiny acorn, giving significance not only to the tree, but to the seed itself. Acorns became a popular jewelry motif dating back to the early Victorian era, and are often depicted in a wonderful range of materials and styles. Their beautiful renderings and sentimental symbolism are still valued in the modern day, making antique acorn jewelry very special!

    A fabulous and unique pair of acorn earrings from the Victorian (ca1880) era! Crafted in 14k yellow gold, these decorative earrings have a beautiful 3-dimensional appeal and resemble an acorn-like design. An elongated oval-shaped link representing the base of the acorn dangles freely below a dome-shaped "cap." The smoothly polished base reflects the light beautifully with every turn, and is decorated with 4 carved lines leading downward toward a beaded tip. It swings with lovely movement from the acorn cap that is graced with a pattern of delicate Etruscan wirework and beadwork across the front surface. A gold oak leaf is situated above the cap of the acorn which is attached to simple gold wires at the top. Despite their size, the earrings are hollow, making them lightweight and comfortable when worn. They frame the face beautifully and are a wonderful example of fine Victorian acorn jewelry. These beautiful Etruscan earrings would make a special addition to any collection!

    Measurements: The earrings hang approximately 1 3/4" long (including the wire at the top), and measure about 1/2" wide and thick.

    Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting or Etruscan wirework design, except for a few very tiny indents to the oval-shaped link on one earring. However, due to the size of the indents and the reflective nature of the link, they are not noticeable when worn. The earring wires are secure and in good working condition.
