This is the nicest Carved Coral set that I have ever had. The 3 pieces are all original and in their original leather box. The brooch and earrings have no hallmarks but the metal tested 14K. The brooch has a lovely carving of a female 3/4 face turned right. She has a roman nose, one shoulder gown and up-swept hair. The cameo sits on smaller Coral beads, which then are on larger Coral beads and finally 3 Coral dangles at the bottom. The earrings match in every way except they are smaller. The Cameos on the earrings are not as detailed, a bit smoother, but still just as lovely. Original long gold ear-wires. These tested 14K. The brooch measures 1" X 2", the earrings are 3/4" X 1 3/8". Total weight is 24.6 grms. Lots of movement in all dangles. The original box has a light green velvet inside, and a brown leather top that snaps closed. There is an old sticker on the back of the box that says $3600-. Condition is very good for age. Some dirt that I will gently clean. I have never had such an amazing Coral set like this. I would date this at c1850's-60's.
