Manufacturer: Sterling Silver Jewelry
A nifty pair of vintage sterling silver pierced earrings which came out of a home. These are gold in color, what we believe used to be referred to as "gold washed" and now often is called "gold over sterling silver". Again, these are not solid gold but look golden (and there is no marking to tell you whether these are washed in 14K, 10K, 24K gold, etc.). Each earring is marked only "925" on the earring stem (this is very clearly read on one earring with the numbers only partially there on the other earring but you can tell it was meant to be stamped 925 here), indicating that these are made of sterling silver. There is no manufacturer marking so we can't tell you who made these.

Small round hoop earrings which have a repeated impressed oval design on the hoop parts. The earrings measure about 9/16 inch in diameter and about 1/16 inch in depth. Small but very elegant looking.

We've provided 6 images including a close-up of the sterling marks on each earring and an image with a dime for size comparison. Overall these are the expected bright shiny golden color but the camera lighting does make white "hot spots" on the highly reflective surfaces. These spots particularly "light up" the design indentation areas. We have not shined these as they are already very shiny and are selling them as is/as found. Please use the close-up feature to fully examine.

Excellent overall condition with no chips, cracks, etc. These likely were worn and when looked at closely with a jewelers loop you can see the expected evidence of use/wear/storage via tiny line scratches, dots, marks, etc., but nothing bad and nothing that would be noticed when worn.

An impressive old set of gold over fine sterling silver jewelry that could also make a lovely gift.

Please note: This item is only available for sale within the U.S.A. and will only be shipped to postal addresses in the U.S.A.

We are listing many other pieces of jewelry separately. If you are interested in more than one, please contact us prior to inputting the order. The system has been set up to calculate shipping for only one jewelry listing and will not provide you the savings on postage you should get when shipping more than one item in the same package. We will need to calculate that for you.
