Please see below for full description.
Description : Renaissance Revival long ear pendants. Extremely elegant. Surmounts with modelled scalloped shells centered by a small round emerald, collette set and bordered by inverted c-scrolls, leading the eye to either side of the earrings, enamelled in pale blue and bordered in
silver. The apex of the surmounts is a larger, raised white flower bud with white enamel and silver detail, enclosing a pale amethyst. Minute silver fruiting detail on the enamel. Links connect to the very long drops and allow them to swing and sway freely as the wearer moves. The drops are centered by a large, oval amethyst surrounded by c-scrolls, spirals and shells in pale blue and enamel with black enamel details, and with a small emerald above the ultimate shell at the bottom. The earrings are full of movement in both design and flexibility.
<P><P> Low grade gold clips are possibly not original to the earrings, but they have certainly been attached to them for a very long time and are very secure and comfortable to wear. Ideal for the woman who does not have pierced ears. <P><P>
Marks: No marks as is to be expected. We acid tested the gold of the clips, which appear to be low grade gold (under 10k). <P><P>
Condition: Good with minor wear commensurate with age. Please see enlarged pictures and don't hesitate to ask questions which we will do our best to answer. Please note that bottom shell has black enamel that does not show up clearly in pictures.
