Rubies symbolize love and immortality. Pearls symbolize purity and harmony. What a great combination for these pretty earrings! They test as 10kt gold, although they are marked 375 for 9kt. The hanging flower basket motif is quite charming. They contain a total of 16 rubies and 18 seed pearls. The total length is 1-7/8”, and together they weight 4.3g. As is often the case with older earrings, it’s possible that the wires are replacements. In excellent condition. We believe they are Edwardian, but could be later – it’s such a classic design that it’s hard to tell. The photos are part of the description; please examine them carefully. We do lay-away. Thanks! Shipping, handling & insurance within the USA included.
