Antique earrings. 18-22k gold, diamonds, rubies, emeralds and tiny pearls. Made in India, 19th century with newer wires.


Measurements: Weight is 5.3 grams. Top to bottom a little over 1 1/2 inches (35mm).


Description : Simple gold wires with beautiful fronts consisting of an arching line of jewels: diamonds set in gold form a line in the center. Gold mounts are octogonal in the center with tear-shapes on either side. These are bordered by small ruby beads on either side. Top and bottom with pearls and emeralds. The top is a tiny emerald bead while the bottom drop is a larger emerald that along with it's supporting pearl swing as the wearer moves. To make earrings more easily worn by today's woman, wires were replaced.


These earrings are classic Indian design, made wearable for today's woman with smaller pierced ears. The colors are a wonderful combination of bright red and green around the glinting centers.


The front of the earrings date to the 19th century. It was common all over the world to adapt jewelry to suit more 'modern' taste and use.


Marks and Metal: No marks, as is to be expected of antique Indian jewelry. The tops are high carat (22k gold) while the newer wires are approximately 18k.


Condition: Good with negligible wear commensurate with age. Please see enlarged pictures and don't hesitate to ask questions which we will do our best to answer.
