Stunning Victorian Era earrings in the shape of “witches hearts” fashioned out of malachite and sterling silver. These earrings date to 1860 – 1880.
Originally they had screw-backs for non-pierced ears. I was not the person who removed the screw-backs, but I did have some extra long shepherds hooks handmade so that they would dangle gracefully.
The earrings have a drop of 34mm.
They measure 27mm from the top of the silver loop to the tip of the heart. They are 14.5mm wide and 5.5mm thick.
