c1880 Taille D'epargne Pinchbeck and Rolled Gold Earrings
Beautifully detailed and dynamic! These rolled gold and pinchbeck earrings were fashioned sometime in the 1880s. They feature natural seed pearls in their centers and taille d'epargne black enameling. The rolled gold and pinchbeck metals are hardly discernible from solid 14k gold, and will continue to wear as such for another century! They hang about 1 3/4 inches long and just over 1/2 inch wide.
