Excellent pair of Victorian 18K yellow gold drop earrings with Mediterranean coral beads. The earrings are quite heavy and are very well constructed with closed backs that make them attractive from behind, as well. The coral has the nice, even coloring of fine Mediterranean coral from the coast of Italy. The original earwires have been replaced with screwbacks, but because of the way the earrings are constructed, there were no alterations to the earrings themselves. They could easily be re-converted to wires. The gold has a slightly rosy color that complements the coral nicely. Tested and guaranteed 18K gold.

Origin: America, circa 1860. Condition: excellent. Size: 1-3/8” x 11/16”. Weight: 8.5 grams.

Extremely fine Victorian 14K yellow gold mesh bracelet featuring five cameos carved from onyx. The five cameos represent four classically-dressed maidens surrounding a young man, also in Grecian attire. The cameos are very nicely carved with good detail.

The cameos are connected to a heavy, high-quality gold mesh that forms the rest of the bracelet. The gold has a slightly rosy tint that nicely contrasts with the black and white cameos. The bracelet retains its original safety chain. The clasp is marked “14K”.

Origin: America, circa 1890. Condition: excellent, one cameo may have a tiny roughness to the tip of the nose, but it may also be simply the way it was carved, all original. Size: 7-5/8” long; 13/16” wide. Weight: 34.5 grams.
