These are the sweetest button and dome style Art Deco earrings, circa 1920's, set with lovely natural almandine garnets. The garnets have a beautiful deep burgundy red color, the color of merlot. The women of the 20's loved their garnets and these are very special. Amazing piece of history in the earrings! How I wish we knew who wore them for special occasions, for her evenings out to dinner, to dances. No matter how you wear them, you will feel special!
There are thirty-eight prong set round cut natural almandine garnets, measuring 2.00 x 2.50 x 2.11mm, weighing approximately 5.00 carats. The garnets are medium dark burgundy red in color, with moderately strong saturation, a good cut, and eye clean.
The earrings are set in a stamped & tested 10K gold setting with friction posts, meaning they have 37.5% fineness of pure gold. Notice the amazing and beautiful gold work between each stone. The earrings measure 9/16ths of an inch from east to west and from top to bottom, and sit up 1/8th of an inch from the ear. The total piece weighs 5.63 grams.
