BANDED AGATE TEARDROPS ( Victorian Banded Agate Cameo Earrings ): These lovely Banded Agate Earrings feature the hand-hammered metal work favored by the designers of the Arts and Crafts style. (Probably English c. 1890 - 1915) They are divided into three sections linked by brass wire rings. The top section is a hammered brass plate with a prong set rectangular hand carved agate cameo of a warrior’s profile wearing a crested helmet. The variations in the carving demonstrate conclusively that they are hand carved. Below the mirror image warrior cameos are small round banded agate beads and finally there are long agate teardrops with random diagonal striping. Gold-filled shepherd’s hook ear wires make these earrings suitable for pierced ears. These beauties are eye-catching and dramatic. Condition: Excellent. Tiny abrasion on one of the cylindrical agate drops. Not visible to the naked eye. Size: 2 3/4" long with ear wires, 5/8" wide.
