Description

I enjoy making jewelry using materials and motifs that were popular in the 1860s.

The first photo is of the pair of earrings that I have created which are for sale--gold-plated acorns adorned with gold-filled leaves, 14k gold-plated earwires. Their Victorian styling is modeled after the antique pairs in the following photos.

As you can see, the photos of vintage acorn earrings illustrate their popularity. Acorn earrings actually came in many types of materials.

Please also note the simple earwires which harken to the style of the era. The antique pairs illustrate how basic the wires were in the mid-1800s.

"Of jewelry, it is not now the fashion to wear precious stones, except upon occasions of high ceremony such as a wedding, or in honor of a very distinguished guest." Arthur's Home Magazine, June 1860.

Wear this pair of earrings to round out your Victorian ensemble or complement your modern attire.

If you order multiple items from my shop, I will combine shipping.
