14K Gold, Diamond & Citrine Renaissance Revival Earrings
A beautiful pair of 14 karat yellow gold earrings featuring stunning green citrines, diamonds and pearls. At the center of each earring is a saturated green citrine, set into an organic gold shape, which has wire-work and gold beading. This type of design is reminiscent of the renaissance revival, when romance and luxury were the inspiration for much of the jewelry worn alongside lavish gowns. The nostalgia for the past created exquisite jewels and there was much care in the crafting of these earrings. A nice akoya pearl, topped with a 14kt gold wire-work design hangs from the upper part of the earrings with links. The pear shaped citrines at the center of each dangling earring measure approximately 5.2 x 4.2 mm; each pearl size is 6mm and the diamond is approximately 1 inch. The earrings are 1-5/8 inches in length. These earrings date to 1930's and are in great condition. They have a maker's mark of ATL and 14KT on the back. These earrings are bright and feminine, adding elegance to any evening dress.
