Long and Elegant, these earrings were worn by a regal lady! The earrings are not marked but test to gold of 14k. They are a hair over 2 inches long and 13/16 inch wide. The gold work is exquisite and great care was taken in the enameling. The rubies are table cut and the back is hand engraved and most jewels of this time were. The top of the earrings has had some work over the years. The center most likely had a ruby but this has been replaced by a round disk of gold. The ear wires are a replacement as the original ones would have been a lot thicker and cruder. These ear wires are a good replacement. C. 1760.
