Victorian Antique Coral Earrings
After a decade of absence long pendant earrings were once again in favor with the ladies of the Victorian era. Coral as a material for jewelry was used quite frequently during the mid 1800s, particularly for day wear and readily lent itself to any number of carved designs.
Fabulous meticulous hand carving places this pair of natural coral earrings in a class of their own. The drop earring appears to be quite substantial in weight yet is light on the ear and easy to wear. An arched form of 14k yellow gold embellished with lovely twisted wire work and hemisphere surmount support an elongated intricately carved pendant of coral. Organic in feel, the drop, topped with a gold cap also decorated with corded rope finishes with an unopened bud-like floral configuration ringed with a gold band adorned in a similar fashion.
Date: Circa 1860.
Measurements: 2-3/8 inches (6.1 cm) in length including ear wire and 1-1/8 of an inch (5.4 cm) without by 5/8 of an inch (1.6 cm) at the widest. Weight of 7.5 grams (4.8 dwt) for the pair.
Condition: Excellent; two tiny wire circles missing to one arch and two on the other with a tiny missing twisted wire element to the cap – all only evident upon close inspection and not when worn.
