1920s Carved Coral Rose and 10K Gold Earrings
Romantic gold drop earrings suspend delicately carved coral roses. Designed during the 1920s, when women’s hair was getting shorter and earrings longer, this piece is an elegant adornment for the modern romantic. Each of the beautiful, soft peach-colored roses is hand carved from natural coral and therefore unique. These earrings are wrought in 10k gold, one of the common metal choices of the day. Each earring has a rose affixed to an ear wire, followed by a hand wrought gold station with a lovely little bead of gold in the center, and then another rose dangling from the bottom.
They are in good vintage condition with minor wear to one of the roses (see photos). When examined with a loupe, there may be a couple of chips to the petals; it is very difficult to tell because they are hand carved. They measure approximately 1 ½” long, 3/8” wide at widest point, and 3/8" deep. Earrings are 10k gold (tested) with carved coral and weigh 3.9 grams.
