This lovely pair of earrings dates to the 1860's, the bottoms are removable so you can wear just the button top. The coral is natural un-dyed and a rich color often referred to as "ox blood". The wires and metal components are silver.
A wonderful way to honor and protect our oceans is by dedicating yourself to buying only antique coral. You can rest assured that all the jewels we sell are recycled. Re-cycle, Re-use, Re-love.
Details.....The earrings have a 1.98" drop from the ear and measure .66" at the widest point. In good antique condition, with a small chip to the top of one dangle. You should always expect some wear to antique and vintage jewels, we consider it part of their charm.
