Art Deco Long German Silver Carnelian & Marcasite Earrings
These wonderful carnelian earrings are from the Art Deco (ca1920s) era! Made of German silver, they have a long, dramatic dangling design. Each earring is decorated with rich carnelian stones and sparkling marcasites. Large triangular links hang at the base, below an elongated drop design. Each carnelian stone is faceted and polished, displaying a lovely deep orange color. The delicate marcasite stones add a gorgeous sparkle- the perfect finishing touch! Stamped on the back of each setting is "GERMANY" and a silver mark. When worn, the earrings swing with lovely movement and frame the face beautifully. They have a strong Art Deco style, and would look wonderful worn day or night!
Measurements: The earrings hang 2 1/2" long, measure 5/8" across at the widest point, and are 3/16" thick.
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 carnelian and marcasite stones, all of which are intact. The earring wires are secure and in good condition. There is a natural patina that gives a darkened antique appearance to the silver setting, which is a normal characteristic of antique jewelry.
