Edwardian Revival 14K Gold & Larimar Demi-Parure - Necklace & Earrings
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1960/1970 or so
ITEM: What a beautiful set! Made of yellow gold, this demi-parure consisting of a necklace and matching earrings, features teardrop-shaped stones that I believe are, well to be frank, I don't know what they are but I believe them to be Larimar. I thought at first Turquoise but then a few dealers on RL e-mailed me to tell me that THEY believed the stones were also Larimar. So I will state Larimar but, if I'm wrong, then the pieces might be an interesting form of natural turquoise or some other stone I am not familiar with. The earrings are for pierced ears and are posts with nuts. The necklace is a take on an Edwardian Revival design.
CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot.
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: 14K on the back of one earring; 14K on one lengthy link holding the stones section together; 14K ITALY on the clasp.
SIZE: Earrings have a length of around 1"; width is 1/4". Necklace has a neck length of 18-3/4". Center stone pendant measures 13/16" x 13/16".
WEIGHT: Earrings weigh 2.7 grams combined; necklace weighs 8.2 grams.
FINAL COMMENTS: This set was found in an unclaimed safety deposit box auction where the boxes were 30 years and older. I believe the Larimar stone was introduced only recently which is why I hesitate to use that moniker on the stone. Whatever the stones turn out to be, they are lovely!
