Antique Victorian 14K Gold, Diamond & Sapphire 4 Leaf Clover Earrings
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1895 or so
ITEM: A pair of yellow gold earrings in the shape of Four Leaf Clovers - one earring set with a diamond, the other with a sapphire. The earrings are for pierced ears and are threaded posts with nuts.
CONDITION: Very nice. The only difference between the two earrings is that one had a repair at some time - the post is different from that of the other (look like the original post broke off). The new post has been soldered (lead solder) to the back of the earring and it has a gold filled nut rather than the original 14K gold one. I guess the jeweler didn't have a gold one to match the other on hand.
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: There is a hallmark on an extra panel of gold on the sapphire earring - it has worn so much I cannot read. Gold filled nut is marked 1/20 12K GF.
SIZE: Fronts measure 11/16" x 3/4".
WEIGHT: 3.6 grams combined
GEMSTONES: The diamond and sapphire are prong set at the center of the earring. Both stones are old cuts and are about 4 points each.
FINAL COMMENTS: Classic design! Wear a little luck on your ears!
