Sweet Antique Edwardian 18K Gold & Natural Pearl Earrings
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1900 or so
ITEM: Here's a pair of, what I believe to be, European earrings for pierced ears. Featuring "front catch" mechanisms, the earrings feature a gold pad to the front upon which has been set a single natural pearl.
CONDITION: Very nice original condition however, while one pearl is perfect in its appearance, the others has a pock mark at the bottom. It's hard to say if this is how the earrings were made or if the one pearl just developed its blemish because of plain old age. It's hard to spot when the earrings are front and center but it is there. Of course both pearls can always be replaced though a professional jeweler would have to make the switch.
METAL CONTENT: 18K Gold
HALLMARKS: There are faded hallmarks on the underside of one earring - the part that goes in the ear. I can't make them out as they are too faded. Metal has been acid tested for content and holds strongly at 18K.
SIZE: From top of bar to bottom of pearl measures 9/16"; width of the pearl at the front is 3/16" (about 5mm). Earrings were probably made for a young girl's first pair.
WEIGHT: 1.1 grams combined
FINAL COMMENTS: Cute little stunners!
