Victorian 14K Gold Bead and Fringe Tassel Earrings
A pair of antique Victorian bead and fringe tassel earrings in 14K yellow gold with a bloomed finish. Circa 1870.
Bloomed gold is a type of textured gold where the gold is given a matte finish. It can then be immersed in acid to create a slight pitted effect, like that of an orange peel. This technique was used predominantly in the Victorian period.
