Antique Victorian 10K Gold & 1.90CT TW Amethyst Drop Earrings
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer....
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: A pair of Victorian era drop earrings featuring a round faceted pale lavender amethyst and a small gold ball drop. Earwires are Shepherd Hooks and are replacements for the original earring findings. As to history, well, here's the story .....
The earrings were found on a gold necklace (now sold) which had obviously been converted from a pin/brooch and the earrings. When I purchased the "necklace" everything was so out of place that I put everything back as it should be - the earrings as earrings and the pendant necklace as a necklace. So what started out as drops to a necklace is once more back again to being earrings!
CONDITION: Very nice with no problems I can spot. Again, earwires are replacements for the originals.
METAL CONTENT: 10K Gold earrings; Gold Filled earwires
HALLMARKS: None. The hallmark for the gold content on the earrings was on the back catch of the necklace (10K). The earwires were put on by my jeweler and I specified gold filled content.
SIZE: Earring section alone measures 15/16" long; width is 7/16".
Amethysts each measure 6.4mm (95 points) for a total carat weight of 1.90CT TW.
WEIGHT: 2.7 grams combined - lightweight earrings.
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready to wear!
