Victorian Gold Ribbon & Fringe Earrings
sold

Long ribbon drops dating to 1860/70. English in origin. 15k multi colored gold. Forget-me-not flower detail is a Victorian era symbol of true and lasting love.

Many earrings from this time period are lighthearted in nature. Playful and naturalistic in inspiration they would have been intended more as fashion accessory rather than a precious heirloom.
