Victorian 14kt/Sterling Mine Cut Diamond Dangle Earrings 1.10ctw
A stunning pair of diamond earrings from the Victorian (ca1880s) era! These beautiful earrings are crafted of sterling silver and 14kt yellow gold and feature a stunning Mine Cut diamond design. Each earring begins with a simple 14kt earring frame with a hinged lever back. A short yellow gold chain attaches to the surmount, dangling a trio of old Mine Cut diamonds, each bezel set in sterling silver. An open circular frame hangs from the bottom, adorned with four sparkling Mine Cut diamonds which are set in the north/south/east/west corners of a larger center stone. Between both earrings, the approximate total diamond weight is 1.10ctw. The earrings dangle with lovely movement, beautifully reflecting the light as they gently swing from the ear. This beautiful pair of earrings would look wonderful worn at any time of day, and would be an incredible addition to any Victorian collection!
Measurements: Each diamond earring hangs approximately 1 3/8" long. The circular link at the bottom has a diameter of slightly more than 7/16" and is about 3/16" thick.
Condition: The earrings are in overall excellent condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling and gold setting and all of the diamonds are intact. The earring wires and levers are secure and in good working condition.
