A very classy pair of antique coral earrings made of solid 18 kt gold.
The earrings have a very lean and classy trefoil design, which was rather popular in the Victorian era. Each earrings is set with three coral orbs accented with gold. In the center of the composition there is a small seed pearl.
This earrings are rather heavy - almost 6 grams together- and are fully hallmarked. They also tests as 18 kt gold.
Overall, an extremely well-preserved pair, virtually as-new condition, which s amazing considering their age (a bit over 150 years). Some natural imperfections to the coral orbs, which is normal, as the coral is not artificial. They are not visible without a magnifying equipment.
Will make a lovey present for antique jewelry lovers!
