Antique Victorian Silver Gilt, Enamel & Seed Pearl Heart Cufflinks/Cuff Links
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so - possibly Edwardian
ITEM: From England, a pair of silver gilt and enamel cufflinks in a heart shape! With one pair of hearts in red enamel, the other side of the cuff links features a turquoise blue enamel. At the center of each side is a natural seed pearl.
CONDITION: Very nice with no dents, dings or cracks to the silver or enamel. On one of the blue links there is are some darkened lines. I don't know why this is so as it is under the enamel layer - I imagine it is a factory happenstance (hard to see without a loupe.)
METAL CONTENT: Silver with a gilt overlay. Being from England the standard would be 925 but if the pieces are European, silver content could be 800 or 900 silver.
HALLMARKS: None. Metal was lightly acid tested for silver content though exact purity is indeterminate.
SIZE: Fronts measure 3/8" x 7/8"
WEIGHT: 3.7 grams combined
FINAL COMMENTS: Leave as is or do what some other people do - separate the pieces and turn into earrings!
