Lovely Victorian 14k Gold Carved Coral Rose Earring & Necklace Set Demi-Parure
Presented is a lovely Victorian 14 karat gold and coral demi-parure,
consisting of a pair of earrings and a matching necklace. The coral was probably
carved in Italy, while the gold work was likely done in America. Each earring is
set in the center with a single rose, carved from lovely dark pink coral.
Hanging from the bottom is a decorative dangle, that moves beautifully when the
earrings are worn. The pendant is done in the same design, but on a larger
This set is in great condition. The coral roses are in great shape. The clasp
of the chain functions well and closes securely. The chain is attached to the
pendant by means of a jumpring, so we opted to leave it as is, but if the buyer
wants to replace this chain with a gold chain or another style, it would be easy
for any jeweler to do.
These pieces are not stamped or hallmarked, but we have tested each piece
with nitric acid. The pendant and the earrings are 14 karat gold, tested and
guaranteed. The chain is not gold.
Each earring is about 2 3/4 inches long, including the wire at the top. The
pendant is about 2 7/8 inches long from top to bottom. 14 3/4 inches long, not
including the tongue of the clasp which does not contribute to the overall
length when worn.
The total weight for the set, including the chain, is 21.9 grams. The weight
of just the earrings and the pendant, without the chain, is 19.7 grams.
