Antique 1910s 9K gold and Old European Cut diamond droplet earrings

A sublime pair of ca. 1910s droplet earrings that we upgraded with Old European Cut diamonds! This pair held "brilliants," or old mine cut rhinestones when we acquired them. We replaced the rhinestones with a pair of VS1/-G-H Old Euros, .52 CTW. This pair is a beautiful example of the short drop earring that was prevalent in American fashion in the early 20th century. This pair has a long-pronged buttercup setting with a crown-shaped "post" accent. Kidney wire closure with bottom latch. Excellent condition.

Note: This pair of earrings comes with a jewelry appraisal for insurance/replacement.

Measurements: 5/8" drop, 1.4 grams
Markings: N/A tests for 9K gold
Era: Mountings 1910s, Diamonds 1930s
