This is a beautiful suite which consists of lengthly earrings and a pendant/Brooch. They are testing as 14K. They feature bloomed yellow gold as well as shiny yellow gold. The earrings span 2 1/2 inches in length. They consist of a hook earlier with a C clap catch. The front of the earwigs have a circular disc which is adorned with a almost Maltese cross. Fitted with a soldiered loop carries the balance of the earrings. There are a lot of wonderful details in the body of these earrings. At the top is a salmon colored natural untreated Coral hand carved rose which is pinned in place and appears to have been reinforced with epoxy at some point which is the discoloration, I am sure it can be removed, but I have left these earrings as found. The larger outer hoop is oblong in shape which has an outer boarder of nicely etched design followed by 7 sweet dangles or fringe, if you prefer. In the center is a bloomed gold circular disc which is open in the middle. These earrings sway nicely when worn. They are in good condition. There is some discoloration to the gold which is from the use of different alloys in the golden over time these sometimes appear, but I have tested them all over and confirmed them to be 14K as there are no hallmarks. The Pin/Pendant is really a special piece. It is crafted in the same manner as the earring but larger. The top features a bloomed gold form which frames this piece so nicely.. I received this beauty as a Brooch, but Found a soldiered loop at the top so I added a couple of jump rings and a 14K gold chain. I feel it is much more wearable as a pendant, so now it can be worn either way, as a brooch or pendant. A great Suite of victorian earrings and Pin/Pendant.
