Circa 1840-60s, 14k. These superb earrings are all about the luminous, smoldering Bohemian garnets. The look is colorfully vintage chic at its authentically antique best. Every detail perfect from precise clean prongs to the polished gold that exactly frames the unique stones. Excellent condition. Restored ear wires noted.

Stone Details: The garnet cabochons, or carbuncles as they were called, are hi-karat gold foil-backed to enhance their fiery appearance. Today, stones of this color often referred to as "Bohemian Garnets" are rare.

Remarks from Lawrence Jeffrey: “To wear history is a marvelous feeling. To find relevant beauty from a century and a half ago a marvel. To make a chic fashion statement grounded by stunning jewels from the early 19th century… there are no words …you are the picture …you are electricity … it is a delight to live in such a moment!”
