Vintage Retro Modern Modernist 14K Gold Ruby Heart Drop Earrings | Old Store Stock
Dating to the 1950s may I offer the most delightful pair of day and night earrings I could ever find! Day and Night? Yes, 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 with very faint marks on the earwires - I can read only a single 4 on one earwire; 14K on the card. Acid testing both pieces, the earwires are indeed 14K while the hearts test at 10K gold.
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!
