One thing I was taught early on is to develop your eye. There are always pieces which have a similar basic description, but the key is to look carefully at the materials and workmanship and then you will make the most advantageous decision.
Here is a pair of Estate Deco Gold and Pearl Earrings. The double cage surround has size and can be worn up and down or sideways as you prefer. But the Pearls are gorgeous lustrous and large at 8 mm a piece.
The earrings are 7/8" by 1/2" and weigh 6.1 grams. The hallmark is depicted in the second picture 14K.
Quality materials and stylish and unique design make for a pair of earrings that cannot be beat. Once again from a local Litchfield, CT estate these earrings are in excellent condition.
