Early Victorian 14kt Rose Cut Diamond Earrings 2.25ctw
An exquisite pair of rose cut diamond earrings from the Early Victorian (ca1850) era! Each earring has a front-facing hoop design, with a round cluster link that swings freely in the center. The earrings are crafted in 14kt rose gold, and hang from gold lever back wires at the top. The entire surface of each earring is encrusted with gorgeous old Rose Cut diamonds, which are pavé set within a closed foil back setting. A single diamond is set at the very top of each earring, grasped in a raised prong setting. The diamonds weigh approximately 2.25ctw combined, and add a wonderful, soft sparkle to the overall design. An enchanting pair of earrings, they are exemplary of the Early Victorian era and would make a stunning addition to any antique collection!
Measurements: The earrings hang 1 1/4" long. Each open hoop has a 5/8" diameter, and the round cluster links have a 3/8" diameter. The earrings measure 1/4" thick at the deepest point.
Condition: The earrings are in excellent antique condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting. The lever back wires fasten securely and are in good working condition. All of the rose cut diamonds are intact. There is a natural patina on the surface of the setting that gives it a subtle darkened appearance, which is normal for early Victorian jewelry and adds to its unique character. *Please note that antique jewelry with foil-back stones should not be submerged in a cleaning solution, or exposed to conditions where it can become wet.
