Antique ca. 1800 Iberian Hessonite Garnet and 18K earrings

The most luscious ca. 1800s convertible Iberian garnet and gold drop earrings. These earrings are drip-dropping with 200 years of magic! The pair is is set with sixty-four (64) hessonite garnets, which are a yellow-orange variety of garnet. The garnets exhibit a range of sumptuous color across the pair and come in two cuts, oval and round. The pair may be worn in three iterations: a one, two, or three piece drop. When the full earring is worn, it measures a stunning 3 1/2" top to bottom. Ornate, rare, and in marvelous condition. Comes with an appraisal for your files.

Note: These earrings are all-original save for the findings, which appear to have been updated in the early 1900s with posts. We provided new screw backs.
