OLD STORE STOCK! Art Deco 14K Gold, .24CT TW Diamond & 5.5mm Cultured Pearl Earrings with Original Box
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: I'm going to say Art Deco, possibly Art Deco Revival - so either the 30s or the very early 1950s.
ITEM: A pair of yellow gold earrings for pierced ears - screw posts with nuts. The design of the earring is a golden starburst or snowflake-burst design with 6 diamonds and one lovely cultured pearl.
CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot. The earrings even come in their original celluloid - hard plastic presentation box with velvet sleeve. The sleeve holds the original price tag for the pair - one part of it is still stuck to the velvet. The price? An incredible $170 - a high price in those days!
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: 14K on the nuts. 14K on the price tag as well. Metal, as well as the diamonds, have been tested for content.
SIZE: 5/8" high/wide
DIAMONDS: Diamonds are accent stones and are graded G-H color and SI1-2 in clarity. Each earring holds 6 diamonds measuring 2mm (2 points). Total combined weight of the diamond is .24CT TW.
CULTURED PEARL: Measures 5.5mm and is a lovely creamy white with just a touch of pink.
WEIGHT: 4.5 grams combined
DIAMONDS: The 2 top set stones measure 2.5mm (5 points). The 6 stones in the bottom drop each measure 2mm (3 points). To the best of my ability, total carat weight of the earrings is .46CT TW - since jewelers like even numbers, the total weight is probably 1/2 CARAT. Color of the stones is F-G and clarity is SI1. The cultured pearl measures 5.5mm.
FINAL COMMENTS: If you like a Retro Art Deco Modern look to your jewelry, then this is a fabulous pair of earrings!
