Welcome to Tudors Fine Jewellery. Here we have for sale a spectacular pair of early 1800's Georgian garnet drop earrings.
I would say that the earrings are set in more of a rose than yellow gold and test as 18ct. The wonderful cut back collets are set with beautiful flat topped deep red garnets with closed gold backs. Each earring comprise of an oval garnet with an additional double garnet drop to include a pear shaped and a circular garnet. The oval garnets measure 9 mm x 6 mm. The pear shaped garnets measure 9 mm x 5 mm and the circular garnets measure 6 mm.
I estimate the total weight to be around 8 cts. The earrings measure 30 mm in length and 9 mm in width and have a combined weight of 4.5 g. Fitted with sturdy gold wire hooks for pierced ears. Overall the earrings are in fantastic condition for their age with marks to the gold expected with age and general wear and tear, solder joins can be seen to the backs where the hooks are fitted but again, this is expected. The garnets are in excellent condition, no abrasion just the odd very very tiny nibble here and there.The earrings are very wearable and have been very well looked after. The earrings will be sent gift boxed, Please note that the box photographed is used for display purposes only and NOT included in the sale.
