An superb pair of Victorian coral torpedo drops with sumptuous pearl tops of the most magnificent baroque pearl earrings.  I have handled many pairs of Victorian coral earrings, but few with the sharp, excellent simplicity of this pair. Circa 1860, and a magical, near mint example of this very coveted 19th century idea. With that wonderful, coveted day-to-night fitting, the baroque tops could be interchanged with any other drop you might have around, creating a multitude of earring combinations and possibilities. I could not imagine a more picture perfect example of a Victorian earring. 

This pair of earrings drop 1.75" and look beautiful with any neutral look, day or night. 

Materials and Features: 14ct gold, coral, pearl

Age/Origin: Victorian, c. 1860

Measurements: 1.75", 8.2 grams

Condition: Excellent condition. Minor associated age wear.  

A note on coral:

During the Victorian era, wearing coral was thought to promote good fortune and health. The deeper meaning of coral leads back to ancient Romans. Poseidon used coral in his palace, making coral a prominent component of mythology. The Romans believed in the luck of coral, which was a sentiment revived by the jewelry of the Victorian era. 

Coral is one of the very few organic gemstones. It consists of a mass of skeletons of tiny marine invertebrates that once lived in a colony attached to rocks or other objects on the ocean floor. The variety of coral that is of interest to jewelers and mystics is referred to as “precious coral” and varies in color from blood-red to very pale pink. 

Please view and inspect any photos closely. We endeavor to fully disclose all condition information clearly and concisely, however, please note that what qualifies as excellent condition for historical jewelry differs from modern and contemporary pieces; please take the age of the piece into account when examining the piece. Minor age wear is typical and to be expected for antique and vintage jewelry. Unless otherwise stated, gemstones have not been officially graded for color, clarity, or treatment by GIA; any information provided is our own educated, professional assessment.
