These striking Momo coral earrings are absolute dazzlers! No need for any other jewelry when these will enchant one and all. These earrings are both gorgeous and easy on the ear, a definite wow on anyone's list. We give these a "10"!!
Comprised of both smooth cut and carved rose cabochons, these magnificent earrings measure 38.6mm tall (just over 1-1/2"). The round cut cabochon is set in a 14K yellow gold bezel that measures 15.4mm, with the cab measuring 8.4mm thick (just under 3/8"). The carved rose cabochon measures 18.5mm at its widest by 10.5mm thick (3/4" by 7/16"). It is fitted with a 4.3mm gold bar which suspends from the round cab's stationary ring, offering lots of sway. A single gold leaf (14.2x7.9mm) with Florentine finish gently cradles each rose. The earrings are fitted with pierced posts and butterfly backs, both of which are hallmarked "14K". The earrings weigh 13.8 grams.
The coral is natural with the actual hue a vibrant orange red hue, with both round and carved cabochons having a uniform hue with the exception of a small white blush on one of the round cabochon's front and a white vein across the back of its coordinating carved rose dangle. This color is more intense than salmon but not red, rather a true Momo coral orange hue. The corals do not display inherent pits or crevasses either on front or back, with both polished to a glossy sheen. The backs of the carved roses display petal carving marks, not natural tunnels.
We estimate age at early 1960's. They offer phenomenal size, quality and beauty that are very difficult to find in top quality Momo coral. Their condition is excellent with the coral supple with no chips or cracks to the smooth cabochons or rose carvings. The gold bezels are in excellent condition with the cabochons securely in place. We see no sign of previous repair or epoxy residue on the back of any of the four corals. It is possible that the pierced posts are replacements or retrofits, as one might expect from the early 1960's. They do fit very well on the ear with their original butterfly backs. However, we will also include a new pair of 11mm magic backs that support daintiest of earlobes beautifully. These are non-allergenic stainless steel. We can also offer special order jumbo backs in 14K gold at our wholesale cost, just email for information.
These earrings are true statement pieces. They are grand on the ear yet still comfortable to wear. The coral's vibrant hue paired with the combination of smoothly polished cabochon and carved rose create an explosion of color and interest at the jawline. They are simply perfect to partner with a little black dress, no other jewelry required.
These beautiful earrings will be delivered in a lovely presentation case, perfect for gift giving and storage, along with a copy of our easy coral care instructions.
