Item details

Vintage from the 19th century

Materials

silver, gilding, green glass, green gem

Description: Here are some stunning antique gilded 900 silver green bead earrings. They are back fastening.

Era: Possibly 1840 - 1848

The style is very 'Biedermeier' which would place them before 1848, however the style continued on so they could also be a little later, anywhere up until 1900 or even early 20th century. (The lack of wear on the hallmarks suggests they are not as old as the Biedermeier era, although they definitely have the style. The Biedermeier period in Germany (1815-1848) was an amazing period during which the arts and beauty flourished. The styles were influenced by the courtly styles of the French Rococo movement.)

Style: Victorian / Rococo / Baroque / Biedermeier

Origin: Germany (Bohemia)

Materials: 900 silver. Unknown green gem or glass beads. Gilding.

Approximate measurements:

Length (from very top of earring to bottom drop: 22 mm or 0.8 inches
Width (at widest point): 12 mm or 0.47 inches

Weight: 3.5 grams (both together)

Hallmarks: 900

Makers Mark: LENCIA.

Condition: Excellent.

Manufacturing: These appear to have been electro-formed, a process first patented in 1840 and popular until the end of the 1800s

Value Points: These are remarkably elegant and stylish earring. They feel light and dainty on the ear but look striking (they are not heavy earrings). The beads are an enticing bright green. They are very versatile as they can be worn with silver or yellow or white gold.

Final words: These are earrings that you just have to have. They are lady-like, rare and gorgeous.
