Victorian knot earrings with pendulums, 9ct gold, England circa 1870
Knots have been symbols of love since ancient times. They bind the lovers together indissolubly, and thus stand for the eternal duration of the feeling. Due to the possibility of redesigning the knot in all times according to the taste and fashion of the time, this motif has always remained current and has been taken up again and again. The present pair of earrings dates from Victorian England and follows this tradition. Created around 1870, it takes the form of so-called "Lover's Knots", or love knots, each consisting of two artfully intertwined ropes. These knots, made of 9-carat gold, have been given an additional fine gold-plating, giving them a particularly warm glow. Two suspended pendulums complete the design and add a moving motif. Similar to the affection of lovers, the decorative loops of the design are inseparable, assuring the wearer of her bond with her partner, come what may. Beautifully preserved, the earrings are touching jewelry with a special, personal statement.
