These 10K earrings are both marked just below the ear wire. They are easy to insert into the ears, close securely, and are comfortable to wear, since they are hollow and not too heavy. They have a pretty design engraved along their edges. They date from around 1890. The wires to these earrings would have originally been inserted from behind the ear, but they may be inserted from the front and hooked behind as well. Each earring is 1 3/8" long X 9/!6" wide. One earring has a repair near the ear wire, but otherwise they are in fine condition. They weigh .9 dwt. or 1.3 grams.
