Estate Chinese Silver & Turquoise Teardrop Earrings
These estate turquoise earrings are simply beautiful! Each earring is set silver gilt and has a lovely design that reflects its Chinese origin. A turquoise teardrop stone dangles freely at the base, swinging from a bead and wirework extension. At the top of each earring is a turquoise bead surmount, which is set in a ridged bezel. Silver earring posts rest securely on the back. When worn, the earrings have lovely movement and provide a beautiful pop of natural robin's egg blue color. Perfect for the turquoise lover, they would make a wonderful everyday accessory!
Measurements: The earrings hang approximately 2" long. Each teardrop stone measures 7/8" tall and is 3/8" wide and thick at the base. The central beads measure 6mm in size, and the surmounts measure 1/4" in diameter.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the silver setting or to the turquoise stones, all of which are intact. The earrings posts and backs are secure and in good condition. There is a natural patina on the surface of the setting, which is normal for vintage jewelry and adds depth and character to the design.
