Antique Victorian Silver Citrine Earrings

The ancient Greeks made use of citrine as early as 4 BC. They used it as a talisman against evil, treachery, and scandal. The Ancient Romans used this gem for jewelry and intaglio work. During the 1800s, its popularity grew, as well as during the Art Deco period. At this time, large citrine stones were used in statement jewelry worn by Hollywood’s most intriguing stars, such as Greta Garbo and Joan Crawford.

These antique Victorian citrine silver drop earrings were handcrafted around 1890 in England. Each of these nature-inspired earrings features a bold yellow citrine set in a frame of overlapping silver leaves. The two oval faceted citrines measure 10 x 8.5 mm. Overall, each earring measures 33.2 x 15.5 mm and together they weigh 5.7 grams. They have been acid tested.

This stunning pair of earrings is certainly not going to spend much time in your jewelry box, as they go perfectly with everything from faded comfy jeans to elegant evening gowns.
