ANTIQUE VICTORIAN SNAKE EARRINGS W PEARLS RUBIES - For Sale

ANTIQUE VICTORIAN SNAKE EARRINGS W PEARLS RUBIES
Price: $850.00
Antique, Victorian snake earrings set with gemstones and pearls. Made circa 1840-1880. A little over 1 inch long. Weigh 3.1grams. Marvellous snake earrings - the reptiles twist around themselves, forming a figure 8, the tails and heads overlapping the edges. Bodies are golden tubular with a diamond-shaped indented pattern on the surface. Raised diamond shapes on the bodies are set with pearls and pink rubies. A raised collar forms the border of body and smoothe-surfaced head, with small dotted engraved decoration and raised stones in the center of a diamond-shape on the head and in the raised eyes. Lovely detail that reflects the Classic Revival craze in style. Loops are very comfortable and easy to insert in the ear. Secure clasp. We assumed the gold was 14k, but it actually tests for 18k although there are no hallmarks. Good condition.
