Textured 15k gold leaves alternate with almandine, plum-hued garnet leaves in these mid-length dangle antique earrings.
Dating to circa 1860, three realistic leaves support six pear or teardrop-shaped faceted garnets for a total length of 1 7/16 inches.
Set closed backed, the garnets radiate a lush shade of raspberry. Each is bezel set with tiny prongs of gold and the addition of granulated orbs at the tips.
Shepherd's hook ear wires and their lightweight construction make these wonderful everyday earrings.
