    Long, torpedo-shaped earrings were fashionable in the 1830s. Many were constructed of hollow metal and elaborately decorated with fancy goldwork and gems. These earrings usually have replacement wires and often the earring tops are replacements.

      Beautiful - I like the chalcedony ones best, but they're all classic and so desirable!
