Antique Drop Earrings, Citrines in Silver c1840-60
What can be totally smashing and quietly understated at the same time? Not much, aside from this exquisite pair of antique earrings. They have that Show-Stopper quality, with ornate applied decoration and set with bright natural citrines. Despite the elaborate design and sparkling parts, these earrings are dignified, almost serene. I think that’s what makes them understatedly outstanding – they were created with such meticulous care, they are grace and charm personified.
In beautiful condition ~ anxious to be worn once again. Only the slightest signs of anticipated wear ~ one stone may have been reset; it is a bit sunken. The wires were repaired sometime in the past. The earrings date to c1840-70. 54 mm long and about 15.0 grams in weight. They will be delivered to you in a proper gift box, with free USA shipping and insurance.
