Antique Aquamarine Earrings
Platinum topped 14k yellow gold open worked settings make for a nearly invisible backdrop for two ambrosial medium deep aquamarines. Faceted and shimmering in an oval cut, the gems add that touch of color to the countenance.
They measure just less than 3/8 of an inch by ¼ of an inch (0.9 cm by 0.7 cm). In excellent condition with possible later date friction post backs changed from screw posts. Approximately 1.15 carats each for the aquamarines (estimated weight). Circa 1910. Please note main photos are against a background and consequently appear a bit darker than in actuality; the second photograph more accurate.
