Victorian (c.1870) 18ct gold micro mosaic earrings depicting Roman scenes of the Colosseum/Coliseum and possibly the remains of the Temple of Castor and Pollux in the Roman Forum. Micro mosaics are made of small pieces of glass or stone. Hugely popular in the 19th century when rich Europeans made their Grand Tours around Europe and bought these as souvenirs, often taking them home to be set into jewellery or other objects. The mosaics depicting Italian landmarks are now highly collectable.
