A fabulous pair of all original antique 15ct gold diamond and emerald earrings.
Hailing from the Victorian era the earrings are crafted in 15ct carat rose gold and silver. The earrings are pendant style with the gold tops fashioned as flower heads. Square cut emeralds surrounded by a halo of 8 single cut round diamonds are set into fluted cupcake mounts. The central section is boat shaped in silver and set with 2 round emeralds. The gold bottom sections match the flower heads at the top except they are slightly larger with a 10 diamond halo surrounding the bigger emeralds. A pair of very large rose gold scroll backs that are original to the earrings complete this magnificent pair of Victorian gems.
MATERIALS: 15ct rose gold, sterling silver, acid tested
GEMSTONE: Presidium tested: 36 single cut diamonds, 8 emeralds: 4 square cut emeralds, 4 round cut
MEASUREMENTS: the earrings measure 1-1/2" (3.2cm) from top to bottom
DATE: Victorian circa, 1880
WEIGHT: 5.9 grams total
CONDITION: In good antique condition with signs of surface wear to the gold and stones under magnification, please see photos. Some of the diamonds are not testing in the diamond range but the majority are, they could be replacement stones (they still test high in the sapphire range) or just not registering on the Presidium Gem Tester due to surface wear. The emeralds are natural and as such have the inclusions and cloudiness that you would expect to see. One of the square cut emeralds in the top flower has a chip on the bottom edge. We have taken this into consideration and priced accordingly.
