Truly outstanding pair of turquoise drop earrings. I have never seen a pair so sumptuous, Made in France in the 19th century - 1850-80. Each earring is 1 3/4 inches long. The design is wonderful, very wearable today. The round top caps a lovely large teardrop with a classic drop to accent the bottom. Excellent workmanship with tight settings and fine gold work of the highest quality. Fabulous color in the persian turquoise of the earrings The design allows the tear drop to swing, further catching the light. They are at least 18k gold, more likely 22k, the combined weight is 13.2 grams.
The previous owner had them converted to screwbacks. Luckily jewelers use lasers now to make alterations and putting back the simple hook should be no problem. In the unaltered state these earrings would retail over $7000. But not at Cachet Antiques! Layaway is available.
