Antique Austro-Hungarian gold + silver old cut diamond droplet earrings in original box

A pair of sumptuous diamond drop earrings with hallmarks for Austria-Hungary. This pair dates to the turn of the century and suspends both old mine and old rose cut diamonds in silver-topped 14K gold. This short style of two-tone, diamond-set, drop earring was popular during the late 1800s and into the early 20th century. This design features flush-set diamonds in domed bezels at the top with a pear-shaped droplet swinging below. The bezel settings, as well as the concentric "floating" style of the terminating diamonds, are characteristic of this style of earring. Comfortable, lever-back or "dormeuse" style closure. Excellent antique condition with visible hallmarks for Pest, Hungary. These earrings come in their original box. 

Note: These earrings come with a jewelry appraisal for insurance/replacement completed by a GIA Graduate Gemologist. The appraisal is set at $3000.
