Antique Victorian 15 carat Forget-Me-Not hinge back earrings

A marvelous pair of Victorian 15 carat gold drop earrings with a raised Forget-Me-Not accent. The earrings are elegant in their simplicity of materials (all gold!) and charming in their detail. The flower bouquets are three dimensional and clearly articulated with leaves, full petals, and a spray of greenery. A lipped border gives the oval earring a pretty framed appearance. The ear wires hinge from the bottom and latch at the top, a back-to-front pair that wears beautifully. Excellent condition.

Note: A small loop at the base of these is a vestige of a further drop, likely a little pearl. The loops are not visible when worn and the earrings are lovely as-is, but if you would like to discuss restoring this element please reach out! We love projects.
