Welcome to Robins Nest Midwest!
First off, this item is subject to prior sale so please contact me before putting it into your basket so that I can make sure it is still available. Second, I don’t know if layaway is available on this item or not so again, you have to contact me to get an answer. Where’s it from? Well, one of my best sources of jewelry who has given me carte blanche to photo what I want to present to my customers.
Up for offer now……..
ITEM: A pair of Retro Modern - Art Deco rose gold earrings with diamonds and synthetic rubies (entirely period appropriate). In a "bow" design that is almost "wing like" in their appearance, the earrings are of a nice size - they won't get lost on the ear. The back mechanism is a clip BUT if the new owner wants them converted to pierced - it would be an easy fix by any jeweler skilled in working with vintage jewelry.
CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot. The largest diamond is bezel set while the rest of the stones are prong set. Excellent workmanship! The clips have a nice feel on the earlobe - not too tight, not loose at all. I can shake my head and they don't move.
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: None that I can spot (which I am finding is the norm with regard to earrings of this type). Metal was gently acid tested for content.
DIAMONDS: The largest diamond (old cut) is bezel set and measures 3mm (11 points). The 6 smaller diamonds in each earring measure 2mm (3 points) for a total weight of .18CT TW. Diamonds are graded SI1 with I color. Total diamond weight to the pair is .60CT TW approx (jewelers like even numbers).
RUBIES: There are 5 rubies to each earring which measure 2mm (3 points). Total ruby weight to the pair is .30CT TW. The rubies are clear and clean - an indication of a synthetic manufacture so that the color might match perfectly, each with the other. Again, this is what was used during the Art Deco - Mid Century Modern era when it came to perfect matching of colored gemstones.
Total Gemstone weight for the pair is .90CT TW however, as I said earlier, jewelers like round numbers and so the pair was probably retailed as 1 CT TW.
SIZE: 1-1/4" x 1"
WEIGHT: 15.9 grams the pair.
