Lovely antique Italian branch coral earrings from the Victorian era. The natural coral branches are hand wired in gilt metal baskets hanging from chains. The earrings remind me of bird nests and include traditional Italian filigree elements. The antique earrings are a screw back design and work well. The coral is a medium orange-red color (characteristic of Italian “noble coral”). Natural coral is becoming very rare and collectible. The metal is antique washed gold tone and has light age appropriate wear. Earrings could easily be converted for pierced ears. We have a lot more coral jewelry and several necklaces that match.
