FREE SHIPPING EVERYWHERE!
These pretty clip on earrings are of heirloom quality. They were crafted in 18k solid gold, in the middle of the last century, and each feature a 1.4ct natural aquamarine. Both aquamarines are of excellent color, showing no inclusions and are well matched. The blue color of the aquamarine is accented by a total of 14 rubies, 12 turquoises and 2 chalcedonies. Two of them are missing but bears little incidence to the gorgeous overall aspect of the dynamic design of these lovely earrings. The stones are all natural, not lab created.
The clip on mechanism springs back perfectly and they are made comfortable by the addition of a cushion pad (see photos) which softens the impact, so that they can be worn all day.
These multi colored splendid earring are in very good condition and easy to wear. Any white or cloudy spots on the images are glare and/or photographic obstructions.
