I was happy to find these earrings. As a long time collector of antique jewelry, I am happy to find a pair of Victorian earrings that are durable, and I don't have to worry if I forget to take them out when washing my hair, or when going to bed. Beautiful amphora shaped pendants drop from the hand engraved tops of these exceptional earrings. They are unmarked, but tested 14 K gold (with wires being 10 K). They are in excellent condition save one very small dent in one of the amphora shaped drops. This dent is very small, and would not be noticed without a loupe or my macro lens. It should show up in the photos; I use a fairly high powered macro lens, but this small pen prick does not diminish these earrings in any way. They are 1 and 3/16 inches long. These earrings are very versatile, as they can be dressed up or down. I like to have a pair of antique earrings, in gold, that I can wear most of the time, without worry, and these fit that bill. Both earrings together weigh 1.8 grams, so they would be quite comfortable in the ear.
