Stunning ESTATE 14K Gold & 9.25 CT TW Alexandrite Drop Earrings!
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1930 or so - possibly earlier or possibly later. It's so hard to say on these beauties!
ITEM: A pair of rose gold drop earrings, screwbacks, with a florette at the top, a star at the center, and a big faceted Alexandrite (I believe) at the bottom. Just so you know, I tested the stones with my Presidium and each went into the "RUBY" section of my tester; since Alexandrite is not on my tester, I am assuming that this is where the stone would lie when tested. Anyway, the stone is very purple and incredibly full of FLASH ranging from light purple to dark purple (with the look of saphiret). Because of this coloring, the stone is most likely lab created and should not be confused with the blue/green NATURAL Alexandrite found in Russia.
CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot. Screw mechanisms work as they should. Conversion to pierced earrings would be pretty easy for any jeweler.
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: 14K H which means the earrings are American manufactured.
SIZE: From top of flower to bottom of stone measures 1-5/8"; width at the widest point is 1/2". Stones measure 11mm (4.75 Carats each) -- that's 9.25CT TW of gemstone!
WEIGHT: 6.8 grams combined
FINAL COMMENTS: WoW! Don't let these pass by!
