Retro 14kt Moonstone + Sapphire Flower Stud Earrings
A beautiful pair of moonstone and sapphire flower earrings from the Retro (ca1940s) era! These lovely studs are crafted in 14kt yellow gold and have an elegant flower-shaped design. Each gorgeous earring is comprised of 6 teardrop shaped moonstone cabochon "petals" which surround a vibrant bezel set sapphire at the center. The prong set moonstones rest in an open-back setting, allowing the light to pass through and perfectly showcase their clear, pale blue color and subtle iridescent flash. The sapphires display a lovely cornflower blue hue, with facets that catch the light beautifully with every turn. Resting at the back is a simple yellow gold post and earring back stamped with a "14K S" purity mark. The feminine design of these studs makes them suitable for everyday wear, and they would make a lovely addition to any collection!
Measurements: Each earring measures slightly more than 3/4" in diameter and is about 1/4" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is great. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the yellow gold setting. All of the moonstones are sapphires are securely set and the earring post and backs are secure and in good working condition. The edge of one of the moonstone cabochons has a very small chip, however, due to the size and location, it is not noticeable when worn. Otherwise, the remaining moonstones are intact.
