Crafted in the late Victorian era these earrings are known as "Day and Night" due to their ability to be converted from evening wear drops to day time studs.

The stud measures 1.40cm x 1.40cm and when attached to the "Night" drop the earrings measures from top to tail approx. 4.5cm  (1.88 inches). 


Weight of both earrings 6.2gms.  No hallmarks, testing as approx. 18ct yellow gold
