Antique 15ct Gold Coral & Diamond Drop Earrings
A wonderful and striking pair of earrings from the early 20th Century. The earrings are made from 15ct gold and have a lovely long drop. The natural coral on either end of the stemmed middles have a wonderful, vibrant colour. The top coral is set in a little gold flower setting, whilst the lower, larger coral stones have Fleur de Lys style emblems to the top in gold. The bottom of the stems have a little diamond in millegrain settings. A lovely combination. Perhaps these earrings have been put together using antique components, though they came to me as they are and the match across the pair is excellent.
Materials - 15ct Gold (marked), Coral, Diamonds
Age - C1920s
Size - The larger coral stones measure approx 12mm by 9.5mm. The drops measure approx 49mm long from the top of the flower to the bottom of the coral, excluding the hooks
Condition - Very good. The larger coral gemstones exhibit a very slight hairline crack in each, though both stones are stable and this is not noticeable when worn. Some natural anomalies in the coral as expected from a natural stone.
