David B Robinson Postal History

Visit my eBay Shop  

In Downton Abbey, you will see the three sisters wearing these exact type of Victorian / Edwardian earrings.  It was amazing and made me stop in my tracks and list these.
These are handmade earrings (not a mass production) from a Mother-Daughter collection of jewelry from Richmond, Virginia.  They bought these in the 1990s in Richmond from a high-end museum gift shop here in that specialized in Victorian Clothing and reproductions.
This pair of earrings is in excellent condition, probably worn once and then put away.  I do not notice any damage.
They are handmade with semi-precious stones, marked "BY SIMON" and "925."  The "925" refers to silver.  These are gold washed over silver.
The body of the earing is from a large "C" hanging clasp that opens on the back so the prongue goes through the ear and then closes as a safety.
This particular pair is stunning, 1 1/2" long--an irregular ovalish art design, and has lots of seed pearls and small faceted what I believe to be clear quartz, and pink stones that I believe to be rose quartz with a large polished saphire in the middle. Total weight is 10.2 grams.  That is a U.S. copper penny in the picture for scale.

These are high-end reproduction pieces, handmade in the tradition of how it would have been made in the era, though they would have been made then in gold and not silver with a gold wash.
