Antique mid- Victorian 14k rose gold rhodolite garnet drippy chandelier tassel fringe lever back earrings. Nice long size with fringe tassels, these measure 1-1/4" long NOT including the lever back wires x 5/8" wide. Oval plummy red natural genuine rhodolite garnets are bezel set and each measure 4mm x 6mm (apx. .56 ct each, 1.12 carat total weight). Fine bead work around the outside oval of gold that surrounds each garnet. Hand chased and engraved designs on the egg shaped flat surfaces. Lots of swing and movement to these lovelies! A showy pair, yet lightweight comfortable construction. They weigh a collective 5 grams and are in fabulous condition. The lever back wires are at the top are new and have been added. Typical of the majority of authentic antique Victorian jewels (particularly hand crafted pieces such as this), the earrings are not gold hallmarked, but have been carefully tested by two separate independent jewelers for karat fineness. The wires are hallmarked "14K". Truly beautiful and flattering! Garnet is the traditional birthstone for the month of January. Circa 1870-1880.
