Antique Victorian Anchor Earrings Set In Shield Surrounded By Rose Cut Diamonds

Simply lovely antique Anchor earrings circa 1880 in original fitted box, designed as a pair of shields in (I think) onyx set with silver anchors that are embellished with tiny rose cut diamonds. The shield has a gold bezel that is surrounded by rose cut diamonds set in silver pinched collet settings with closed backs. At the bottom are suspended 3 further pear shaped rose cut diamonds also set in matching silver settings. At the top another rose cut diamond is set onto the gold ear wire. That's 20 rose cut diamonds on each earring.

These are very desirable earrings, anchors are highly sought after in any piece of antique jewelry.

These were perhaps for a Naval Officer's wife.
