The Victorians loved their puppers as much as we do. In 1860, these earrings were made to celebrate two fine hounds: looks to me like a mastiff and a spaniel. Aventurine glass (goldstone), multicolored glass tesserae, GOOD DOGGIES.
14k gold ear wires and chains (tests), 10k gold pendant frames (tests), aventurine glass (goldstone), multicolored glass tesserae
Very good - a couple of missing tesserae but mosaics are completely stable
2 1/8" length measured from the top of the ear wire, 3/4" at the widest point
