Sweet, chubby little Victorian bird earrings fashioned in gilt silver and resplendent with turquoise, seed pearls and garnets. Note that one bird's beak is shorter than the others, this may have been a design choice to differentiate these cuties, or it may be the result of a modification or repair.
