Straight from Italy come these wonderful red carved coral earrings. They are very unique and the first of their kind I have had to offer.

The two portions are well carved putti / angel heads or perhaps a mythical woman's head. Beneath there is a nice urn shaped dangle. The carved detail is really wonderful. Her faces are well done and extremely proportional. Her curls are all tight and appear as a crown of flora. They are very attractive on the ear.

This red coral was harvested in the Mediterranean Sea possibly 200 years ago. Much of the red coral which came from jewelry quality coral beds was gone by 1900, turn of the century. Since it was depleted, red coral is in high demand and is highly sought after. This red color is deep and is Ox Blood or deep red.

The earrings dangle 2 1/8" from the top of the wire. The coral portion from the top of her head to the bottom of the point measures 1 1/2". They are extremely comfortable on the ear. The long shepard wires were converted somewhere along the way. They are comfortable and have terrific movement as they are articulated twice, once under the wire and once in the middle.

Each earring weighs exactly 2.2 grams for a total of 4.4 gms.

Pristine antique condition with no apologies to be made.

Circa 1860 ~ Victorian Era

Italian in origin

This is a really wonderful pair of hard to fine antique earrings. Questions are always welcome and encouraged.
Please note: Box is for display and I have photographed an open carved orange rose next to the earrings to give you a good feel for their color.
