Vintage 9ct Gold & Coral Etruscan Style Heart Earrings
An interesting pair of earrings made from various vintage components. These earrings came to me as is and are a lovely pair of earrings with mixed elements. The circle is a little sleeper earring that has been soldered together with a vintage gold heart dangling in the centre. The hearts are hallmarked and dated Birmingham 1992, and the little Etruscan style balls at the bottom are likely to be a little earlier, perhaps mid 20th century. All gold pieces are 9ct gold, either hallmarked or tested. The earrings are finished with four little natural coral beads that are certainly antique in origin, mid Victorian.
An unusual mix of elements that look great together and have formed a unique style.
