THE FINE PRINT

Due to the nature of antique & vintage jewelry, many diamond and gemstone weights are calculated by measurements, not removed. Actual weights are noted in the item’s description. Grading of diamonds and gemstones may vary slightly when removed.

HONESTY

Being as honest as possible about the items we represent for sale is our ultimate goal! Our pricing is industry recognized as fair and equitable with value as the byword.


Measurements: 1-1/4 inches (3.2 cm) in length including ear wire and 1 inch (2.5 cm) without by 3/8 of an inch (1.0 cm) at the widest. Weight of 2.8 grams (1.8 dwt) for the pair.

Condition: Excellent; one large garnet has an edge internal inclusion visible with a loupe; each connecting ring between the top and bottom has been reinforced; modern 14k ear wires. Was this pair originally two brooches converted? We see absolutely no evidence to support this contention on the back of the larger garnets.
