Signed Tiffany & Faraone 18K Gold & Ruby Earrings
A stunning pair of 18K yellow and white gold earrings by Tiffany & Co. and Faraone. The slightly elongated yellow gold hoops are edged in opposing white gold borders that cross in the middle and open into collet settings for brilliant navette-cut natural rubies. The stones have superb, rich color saturation and outstanding clarity, as would be expected. The stylized organic design is really very elegant. Faraone, one of the oldest and most luxurious of the Florentine jewelers, was purchased by Tiffany in the 1990s. Most of the designs created there were only available at the two Tiffany boutiques in Italy—one in Florence and another in Milan. Pieces signed both Tiffany and Faraone are quite difficult to find. The stores are now closed and the only Tiffany items sold in Italy are those that are available at every other Tiffany boutique worldwide. These earrings are fully marked with Italian 18K gold hallmarks, and also “Faraone” and “T & Co.”.

Origin: Italy, ca. 1990. Condition: excellent, all original. Size: 15/16” long; 1/2" wide. Weight: 19.5 grams. Approximate Total Gemstone Weight: .5 carat.
