A pair of Vintage, 9ct yellow gold, Pearl Earrings on screw fittings.
With pearls, sometimes the simplest way is the best way, these earrings are a great example of that, plain, simple and effective. The fittings are 9ct gold screw fittings originally retailed by Ciro pearls. Ciro are well known for selling simulated pearls, and these earrings did have very worn simulated pearls on them, which I've replaced them with the highest quality Freshwater Cultured Pearls I could find.
Dimensions: The loop of the earring is approximately 10mm deep and 5mm wide. The wire that comes from the pearl, around the lobe to the back is approximately 1mm wide. The screw wheels are approximately 5.5mm in diameter.
Pearl Details: Each earring is set with one freshwater cultured pearl. The pearls are white with a slightly cream overtone of approximately 8-8.5mm diameter, almost perfectly round, very few blemishes (the challenge is to find them) and of a nice bright lustre. These were the best I could find for the purpose without going to a ridiculous price.
Metal and Marks: The screw fittings are stamped on the wheels "Ciro England 9ct" and have been tested to confirm this. These are typical of the 1960's style.
Weight: Approximately 2.37 grams in total.
Condition: Very good. A little bit of wear and discolouration to the fittings.
All vintage items have been worn and loved before they find their next owner, so they should always be worn or used with a little more care than a brand new piece.
