OLD STORE STOCK! Vintage 14K Gold & Ruby Floral/Heart 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: Just the most delightful pair of day/night earrings I could ever find! Day/Night? Yeah, the bottoms come off the top shepherd hooks with ease so you can just wear the hooks or wear the combo - or swap out the floral hearts with something else - or turn the hearts into charms - maybe a charm and a pendant. Oh well, you get the picture! The heart drops have a floral inset highlighted with a ruby red stone - more than likely synthetic but entirely period appropriate. Oh, and the pieces are two tone gold - rose gold and yellow.
CONDITION: Pristine! Found on the card which I hope I photo'ed, the earrings were found just as you see them but with no indication of what the original price was (drat!).
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: 14K on the earwires; 14K on the card. Hearts were gently acid tested for content.
SIZE: Shepherd hooks are just regular sized/adult sized. Hearts measure 13/16" x 3/4".
WEIGHT: 3.2 grams combined
FINAL COMMENTS: I only have one pair!
