Gorgeous Victorian 14k gold seed pearl pin and earring boxed set, pretty design, delicate and highly wearable.
The earrings measure 3/4" from the top of the loop to the base of the medallion part, the medallion itself is 1/2" diameter. The pin measures 2 1/2" long, with a slightly longer central medallion measuring 5/8" diameter.
Less bulky than many of these sets, the workmanship on the pieces is outstanding, the ultra fine mil-grain detailing on the pin makes it look as if it were cast from a real stem. Three little genuine seed pearls are prong set, one in each earring and one in the pin. The pin has a steel pin which is in excellent working order. Pierced earrings have a hook back that closes in a loop, very secure.
Still in the original oil cloth box with blue velvet lining, marked interestingly Connemara Hotel Madras, Jamil Marikar, this came to me from England, so a piece of colonial history.
Like much Victorian jewelry the pieces are unmarked, but my local jeweler acid tested at 14k. Up to 4 months layaway available, please contact me for details.
