Retro Sterling Moonstone & Garnet Cluster Earrings
These moonstone and garnet cluster earrings from the Retro (ca1940) era are absolutely beautiful! Made of sterling silver, each of these striking earrings is comprised of a moonstone center surrounded by nine rich garnet stones, forming a spectacular cluster. The moonstone cabochons are bezel set and have a gorgeous pale blue color with iridescent flashes. All of the bezel set garnet stones have a faceted surface and display a rich, vibrant color that contrasts perfectly with the alluring moonstone cabochons. Delicate sterling beadwork and twisted silver rope details complete the beautiful design. At the top of each cluster is a simple sterling earring wire. A stunning pair of earrings, they look lovely when worn and would make a special addition to any collection!
Measurements: The earrings hang 1 1/4" long, measure 7/8" wide, and are slightly more than 1/4" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver setting, and all of the garnets and moonstones are intact. It appears that at one point the sterling may have been gilded, as there is a subtle gold wash that remains in some areas.
