What an incredible pair of earrings! I have been negotiating for these for some time and I think the antique dealer who sold them to me finally just got tired of my asking about them. They had been with his shop for many years, so we are both happy to pass them along to a new admirer.
These juicy, delicious aquamarine earrings are simplicity itself. Natural stones with excellent clarity, the pear shaped gems measure about 10x7mm and are estimated to weigh about 2 carats EACH, so with the pair you are looking at approx 8 carats of aquamarines. They are set two to a side, simply and securely into white gold and drop about 27mm from each ear (total length of each earring is about 30mm.) The stones are a medium blue with a strong green undertone, earth mined and natural. They have a screw back closure but could easily be converted to pierced if desired.
Condition is excellent. The earrings look great under magnification. They are marked and test for 14K. These earrings weigh 2.8 grams each. Aquamarines are a birthstone for March.
