OLD STORE STOCK! Vintage 14K Gold & 1 CT TW Garnet Floral Drop Earrings
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST!
OLD STORE STOCK! What does this mean? Well, to a person who sells jewelry, it’s like finding a Holy Grail – store stock that was stored for so long that it was never offered to the public. This means, in some instances, that the original card, wrapping, packaging is present as well as the original sales price. I got lucky recently and came into such a collection of old store stock that listings beginning with this blurb have not seen the light of day in 50 – 60 – 70 years. First come, first served. May I offer now……
AGE: C.1950 or so
ITEM: Found attached to a white card that reads "IMPORTED" and with handwritten notations of 14K and $16.00, here's a pair of pierced earrings, shepherd hooks with a front round embellishment, holding a pair of florals, each one set with a faceted garnet!
CONDITION: Perfect! The drops are loosely hanging from the shepherd hooks so they can be removed if desired and just the earwires worn. The jeweler who had these earrings certainly loved shepherd hooks - I guess he figured you could suspend whatever you wanted from them!
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: 14K the earwires; no marks on the drops - they were gently acid tested for content.
SIZE: Shepherd hooks are regular adult size. From top of ball on the hook to bottom of drop measures 1-1/4" width is just shy of 1".
GARNETS: Garnets are extremely clear and faceted nicely. Each stone measures 5.2mm (50 points) for a total weight of 1 carat!
WEIGHT: 5.6 grams combined
FINAL COMMENTS: Lovely!
