ANTIQUE VICTORIAN 14K Gold Earrings - Natural Pearl, Turquoise, Enamel, Pierced

Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….

AGE: C.1880 or so

ITEM: I found these earrings originally with long, loopy hooks - however, they had completely deteriorated and needed replacing. I took the earrings to my jeweler and he told me that he could convert the hooks to posts only - which I had him do. The result is that the earrings no longer hang from the ear but rather sit on the ear! True Victorian beauties, the pair is made of yellow gold and features natural pearls and turquoise cabs. The design is made all the more elegant by the black taille d'epergne enamel. It's possible the pair was meant as a "just coming out of mourning" set but I am not sure. All I know is that the look is extremely elegant.

CONDITION: There are only 2 small faux pas - 2 of the turquoise cabs have some stone missing. One is a "shaved edge" which you are not going to spot at all - the other is a small section missing at the tip. Hard to see with the naked eye but I am sure it shows in my photos. Oh, and I don't show nuts to the posts but before sending, I will find a pair to send.

METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold

HALLMARKS: 14K on the earwire. The stud itself was gently acid tested for content.

SIZE: 3/4" high/wide.

WEIGHT: 6.7 Grams

FINAL COMMENTS: Victorian earrings in pristine condition are hard enough to find and when you do, you pay the price. I want to find a home for these beauties despite their beauty marks so I have priced them as reasonably as I possibly can and no, I will not entertain offers.

Anyone want?
