DESCRIPTION (Please scroll to the bottom to view video)
Stunning pair of antique Victorian Bohemian garnet drop earrings dating to around the late 1800’s to turn of the last century.
Modelled as a double articulated drop with the bottom a two dimensional tiered rosette and the top motif resembling a butterfly.
The plumby red Bohemian rose cut garnets are luscious in colour and set in claw silver settings and the back in Tombac or ‘Garnet gold’, which is an alloy of cooper and zinc used to imitate gold and very commonly used in Bohemian Garnet jewellery during this era.
Originally screw backs with a tiny rosette cluster which these drops suspended from we have had our jeweller source a large and solid pair of 9ct yellow gold shepherds hooks to enable these to be worn with ease. The original tiny garnet rosette screw backs will be included in purchase to retain their originality. (They are in perfect condition also).
Striking in the ear, substantial in weight at a combined 6.14 grams and beautifully made, these earrings look incredible when worn.
Drop from ear 3cm
Bottom rosette - 1.5cm round
Very good to excellent antique condition. No chips or damage to Garnets. Gorgeous colour and really sparkle. Hooks are large and solid quality.
Stunningly good earrings.
