Blue Zircon Silver Drop Earring Conversion, Four Victorian Graduated Bezel Set GemsAdd to Wishlist
Blue zircon bezel set drop earrings. These dangle earrings feature four old cut blue zircons which are slightly graduated in size. Measuring over 6 mm each, each gemstone is held in a simple silver collet. The base of each of the bezels is rose gold where they would have touched the skin in their previous incarnation as a bracelet. We've added classic Victorian style ear hooks to create the most lovely earrings!
My jeweller had a blue zircon line bracelet dating to the late Victorian to Edwardian era. We've salvaged it to make other jewellery including rings, pendants, and drop earrings. These zircons are hinged so they move slightly. We like that movement. If you'd prefer, we can soft, non-lead solder the hinges so that they do not move. Circa 1880s - 1910 parts, modern conversion.
