These dainty angel skin coral drop earrings are marked 9CT, or KT in America, and the marking tells us they had a European origin, most likely England. They are marked on one post with the 9 carat mark, with the other bearing the mark of the jeweler. The hallmark reads what looks like N _ S. I can not read the middle initial. They have been professional cleaned and the marks confirmed for me by Maine Gold and Silver and are in excellent condition ready to wear. The clutches are also marked 375 for 9CT. The coral drops are 13mm in length with the gold chamfered section adding another 11mm to the length. The color is lovely , and the earrings are so pretty and dainty on the ear. The design tells me they are most likely Art Deco in age or perhaps even earlier. If you love angel skin coral, these earrings will make a wonderful addition to your fine jewelry collection.
