14K Yellow Gold Tassel Earrings
Take a quick glance at a portrait of any glamorous Victorian era dame, and you’ll likely spy a gorgeous pair of tassel earrings. Tassels have historically marked those of great esteem - scholars affixed them to graduation caps as a mark of intellectual superiority, the church tied them to robes to denote rank amongst the clergy - Napoleon even decked out his imperial throne with tassels. Add some history to your jewelry box with these Victorian era 14K yellow gold tassel earrings, which are just as popular on runways today. Featuring a fan shape design with cascading chainmail fringe and delicate scrollwork details, this pair dates to circa 1890. Graceful and fun, these are small enough to wear with jeans, but suitably elegant for a dinner party.
