Big garnets the color of raspberries framed in lacy wire- worked gold mountings make up this beautiful pair of handmade antique garnet and gold earrings . ( Unmarked , 14K acid tested. )

Cabochon -cut , somewhat flat with gently rounded cushion-cut shape tops and faceted sides, stones that are full of natural fissures , feathers and all sorts of tiny mineral deposits easy to see . Clear they are not, but that's what I like about them. Large stones at 10mm X 12mm, each one set with four prongs in the middle of swirled open-worked gold frames, indicative of jewelry making in Spain at the time.

French back closures, put in from behind the earlobe, with hinged wires that clasp into the middle of the wire work at the top. Not as difficult to put on as some think. It may take a mirror and patience but worth the effort, and this pair has wires that are large and easy to work with.

In excellent antique condition, handmade with all the nuances of such. Elegant with an appealing informal quality .
