Sentimental jewelry was quite popular in the Victorian era when overt expression of emotions was highly checked. Often these items contained hearts and flowers, frequently together. Gifts of this kind were one way to express one's sentiment to a loved one, be it friend or family. These tiny heart earrings in rose gold are just one example. Today these would make the same impression; one of love and affection for the recipient.
Measurement: 5/8"; the scale is delicate
Metal: Probably 15kt yellow gold (not tested) as they are English in origin
