Closing out antique jewelry I've had for decades, this is a beautiful hand carved ivory and 10k gold set of long dangle earrings, still in their original domed or camel back box. Photos show them in great detail, a lily drop with leaves - very pretty when being worn (and in proper scale. Victorian to possibly earliest Edwardian Era. Even the old box is in fine condition.Measurements noted on photos.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type, I find no chips at all. Enlarged as much as my photographer did, a tiny dot of dust or two showing, but easily brushed away, and you won't see it in hand, either. They're beautiful!
IMPORTANT NOTE regarding antique tortoise shell or ivory: We are great supporters of protection for endangered species in our modern world. We never buy or sell anything 100 years or newer; we donate to anti-poaching organizations; we don't hunt; we conserve in ways that impact global warming (we're totally solar at home), knowing those measures also protect the animals in the wild today. We also recognize the vast cultural history we preserve with our care and reverence for these antique objects, and agree with CITES that objects over 100 years of age have nothing whatsoever to do with species depletion in our current world.
Our offering exceeds the age limitation of "more than 100 years of age", and is well within the exemption for CITES regulation. If imported, met the CITES regulation. This item will be handled and shipped from our Utah business, and is not available for shipment internationally, nor within the USA to California, NY, Nevada, Hawaii, New Jersey, Oregon, Washington if it contains ivory, sorry. Please see our small print for more details.
