A super pair of 12ct yellow gold Victorian padlock and key earrings with small blue paste highlights. This rare and wonderful pair of antique Victorian earrings are loaded with symbolism with the padlock shaped as a love heart adorned with the sweetest of keys to signify the key to ones heart. The hook fittings are typical of the period and are the perfect size to worn as daywear. Despite dating from the late 19th century they feel so contemporary but are in fact a fine and very pretty pair of antique earrings.
