Autumn beauties...These 14K coral earrings offer extra large 16.5mm cabochon buttons with pierced posts and Omega clips. Simply scrumptious, the deep salmon hue of these natural coral earrings bring just the right youthful blush to any complexion. At 16.5mm, these are some of the largest coral button cabochons that we have seen in some time. Masterfully carved to perfection with gently curved edges, the cabochons are mounted on thick 14K gold platforms with hand pierced solid backs. The coral buttons themselves measure 11/16" wide by 5/16" thick. Including the spectacular hand cut gold mounts, the earrings measure a total of 3/8" thick. The earrings are fitted with both pierced posts and Omega clips for excellent support. Together, the earrings weigh 12.5 grams.
The button cut is a favorite that is rarely used today, with a standard flat cut cabochon much easier to cut and mount. These earrings offer beautiful cabochons that need no frills or diamond accents to enchant. The coral is natural and not dyed or enhanced. Their color is a rich salmon with a few white spots at their lower edges. Both exhibit a nice growth pattern visible with the naked eye but even more dazzling when magnified. There are no inherent fissures or crevasses in the coral. There are no hallmarks or makers marks, but the gold has been tested and is guaranteed at 14K.
All is in excellent condition with no chip or cracks to the coral, nor damage to the gold mounts, pierced posts or Omega clips.
These earrings bright color and simple lines enhances any facial shape, any hair length. Their spark of color is a standout that can stand alone or be mixed and matched with other jewelry.
