A fabulous and usual pair of Vintage hand carved blackamoor and coral earrings. These wonderful earrings are of Italian descent and probably from the 1950's time period. Each begins with a single coral bead surmount which has 14kt yellow gold lever backs. Surrounding the coral bead is a round gold disk that connects to the carved blackamoor faces. A 14kt gold link is riveted into the top of the wood face which is wonderfully and intricately hand carved. Each earring wire is stamped "14K". Blackamoor jewelry has become very collectable and these wonderful earrings are simply exceptional. They're lovely and would make a great addition to any collection!
Measurements: The earrings hang 1 1/2" long, are approximately 3/8" at the widest point and a little more than 3/8" at the thickest point.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. There is no apparent damage to gold setting, earring wires, coral or to the carved blackamoor faces.
