Victorian Silver & Bohemian Garnet Dangling Ball Earrings

SKU: 38540


Bohemian garnet jewelry dates back to the 19th century. During this time, garnets were one of the most popular types of stones used in jewelry production. The garnets were often placed close together in an effort to produce a more pronounced color and brightness than when they were set singularly. Most often, bohemian garnet jewelry was set in a closed back setting made of rose gold gilt over silver; this method is sometimes referred to as 'garnet gold'.

A beautiful pair of dangling Bohemian garnet earrings from the Victorian (ca1880) era! Each earring features a ball-shaped link hanging from the base, which is completely encrusted with fiery deep red garnets. The stones are pavé set above a silver base, and each link dangles from a strand of fine silver chain. Completing the design is a decorative petal surmount at the top, also featuring a complimentary bohemian garnet design. The earrings hang from gold-filled wires and have lovely movement when worn, framing the face beautifully. They would make a special addition to any collection that could be worn day or night!

Measurements: Each earring hangs approximately 1 3/8" long from the top of the gold-filled wire to the base. The garnet ball links measure 3/8" in size. 

Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the silver setting or gold-filled wires. All of the bohemian garnet stones are intact and securely set.
