ANTIQUE DROP EARRINGS GARNET PEARL IN SILVER - V FINE - For Sale

ANTIQUE DROP EARRINGS GARNET PEARL IN SILVER - V FINE
Price: $850.00
Simply beautiful antique pair of drop / dangle earrings - garnets and pearls set in silver. Believed to date to late 19th / early 20th century (Victorian / Edwardian era). Measure 1 3/4 inches long. Made of simply wonderful tiny garnet beads, which we believe to be the rarer hessonite garnet, small round pearls, perfectly matched, and carbuncle, larger pyrope garnet drops. Set in silver, the metal of choice for most Victorian jewellery. Earrings consist of 3 sections, attached to the ear by a simple post. The upper, geometric section with a diamond/square shape, centering around a pearl and ending in overlapping scrolls. A small amount of movement is enabled by the well-fitting loops that link this section to the long, tapering middle - openwork with minute filigree metal and a line of the same matching pearls in the center. A loop connects a beautifully set carbuncle cabochon garnet with the appearance of a bud or fruit, with a large range of motion - swinging freely as the wearer moves. The whole is outlined in gently sparkling garnets with a fiery orange-red glow. Workmanship is outstanding. Hallmarked 925 on the closed back of the cabochon garnet. This mark was used from at least 1860, so it is difficult to date the earrings exactly except by style and quality of workmanship. Very good condition.
