ANTIQUE VICTORIAN 14K Gold Earrings - Rose Cut Diamonds, Drops, Original Box
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1880 or so
ITEM: Still nestled in their ORIGINAL box, here's a stunning pair of Victorian earrings set with rose cut diamonds (floral design to the front) as well as small drops (again, holding rose cut diamonds). The top section of the earring is slightly curved making it hard for me to get a proper picture; the drops hang correctly when the earrings are on the earlobe. You may be able to spot it in the photos, but the earrings are a combination of rose gold and yellow gold. There are 4 diamonds to each earring - 2 at the top, 1 in the flower and 1 in the drop. Earrings are for pierced ears and are closed back hooks.
The original box is a leather outer shell with a red silk and red velvet interior. The printing on the inside of the lid tells me that the earrings are from South America - Montevideo, Uruguay to be exact.
CONDITION: Excellent - they have been residing in their original box for many, MANY, years!
METAL CONTENT: 14K Gold
HALLMARKS: None, as is the norm with older pieces of Victorian jewelry. Metal was very lightly acid tested for content.
SIZE: From top to bottom of drop measures about 7/8". Width is about 5/16" at the widest point.
DIAMONDS: The rose cuts are not graded and, if I had to use my best guess, there is about .10CT in each earring for a total of .20CT TW. Coloring is quite clear with no visible inclusions.
WEIGHT: 1.6 grams combined - lightweight earrings.
FINAL COMMENTS: Absolutely gorgeous! A perfect wedding or graduation gift for some lucky lady!
