Victorian Acorn Earrings

$1,800

These mid 19th century earrings are artful renderings of acorns, a popular motif in the Victorian era that conveyed longevity and renewal. And because the mighty oak tree grows from the tiny acorn, it was also employed as a symbol of power or victory, and can often be seen decorating military tombs from this period.
