Description : the Victorians, like the Georgians before them, loved deep, rich red cabochon garnets, which they called carbuncles. This classic, elegant pair of garnet carbuncles is surrounded and offset by a ring of rosecut diamonds. Garnets are a little bigger than what we usually see in earrings of this sort and make a stronger statement. The clips at the back are almost certainly replacements to hold the posts securely in place.
As wearable and attractive today as they were almost 150 years ago. They will match any outfit from your jeans to a smart business suit.  

Marks and Metal: No marks were found. Gold tested electronically and with acid for 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.
Independent appraisal available to new owner. (Valued $7555.00)
