SOLD Antique 15ct Gold Turquoise Enamel Heart Earrings
Such a pretty pair of earrings from the turn of the century, c1900. The earrings came to me as is, though they started life as a pair of cufflinks. They have been converted to earrings with 14ct gold shepherds hook posts. To the front, the beautiful and elegant heart shape is covered with turquoise blue enamel that is in excellent condition. At the centre of each heart is a little seed pearl set in a kite shape. The hearts looks very elegant in the ear and are extremely pretty.
Materials - 15ct Gold (tested), Turquoise Enamel, Seed Pearls
Age - C1900
Size - The hearts measure approx 10mm square.
Condition - Very good. There is evidence of a little soft solder near the top of the hearts at the base of the shepherds hook. This is due to the fact that they have been converted later and enamel cannot be heated to the temperature required to use gold for this conversion.
