Elegance Redefined: Late Victorian Diamond Earrings

Dating back to circa 1890, these Late Victorian earrings, fashioned in 18K pink gold, epitomize the era's shift towards more refined and whimsical designs. Each earring is adorned with 52 rose cut diamonds, their precise cut capturing the light in a dance of sparkle and subtlety. These pieces hark back to the Aesthetic Victorian Period, a time when jewellery evolved from heavy, ornate designs to lighter, more romantic creations. In very good condition, they reflect a blend of artistry and femininity, embodying the elegance and charm of the Victorian age, making them not just ornaments but bearers of history and grace.

Style
Late-Victorian - Victorian decorative arts refers to the style of decorative arts during the Victorian era. The Victorian era is known for its eclectic revival and interpretation of historic styles and the introduction of cross-cultural influences from the middle east and Asia in furniture, fittings, and Interior decoration.

Victorian design is widely viewed as having indulged in a regrettable excess of ornament. The Arts and Crafts movement, the aesthetic movement, Anglo-Japanese style, and Art Nouveau style have their beginnings in the late Victorian era.

Style specifics
The Late or Aesthetic Victorian Period - Experts divide the reign of Queen Victoria, also called The Victorian era (1837-1901) into three periods of about twenty years each; The Romantic Victorian Period (1837 - 1860), The Grand Victorian Period (1860 - 1880), and the Late or Aesthetic Victorian Period (1880 - 1901).

We consider this to be of The Late or Aesthetic Victorian Period.
