The leaves all have fine hand-engraved detailing. These hang on simple 14K wire hooks which are later replacements (a lot of these Victorian drop earrings were converted to screwbacks in the 20C, so these probably went from wires to screwbacks and are now wires again). They have beautiful details and a lovely open quality.
