Antique Diamond 14 k Earrings

Truly stunning antique 14 karat gold diamond earrings. (Not hallmarked but electronically tested). The bottom diamonds have an à jour so the light shines through them beautifully. They are primarily constructed from yellow gold with what I believe are white gold rims around the diamonds. 

Era: Possibly pre-1884 as most German and Austrian jewellery had hallmarks after that date. This style is known as 'Top and Drop' and has been popular since Georgian times. The style of these earrings is so classic that I haven't been able to accurately age them. 

Style: Victorian or Georgian. 

 

Origin: Austria
