Just purchased in Paris, these French 18 karat gold earrings are an elegant, classic design. They have concentric circles in gold and onyx, enclosed in 18 karat engraved mounts with rope edge detailing. They gently articulate and the onyx reflects light.
They measure 1 3/4 inches long including the ear wires X 1 1/8 inches across. The patina is rich, and the condition is excellent. There are French guarantee stamps on the ear wires.
Just the perfect, sophisticated "go to earrings" to have in your jewelry box, as they are easy to wear day and night.
France, circa 1880.
