Ruby and diamond art deco earrings – RESERVED

£735.00

A pair of art deco earrings set with ruby and diamonds. Modelled in 9ct with silver tops they date as circa late Victorian to early 20th century. A wonderfully secure fitting, these have large hooks with a small clasp that latches over the bottom of the hook.  As with many earrings, we do not believe they started life as earrings. That being said they are a bit too delicate to be anything else. All we can do is go from experience and give you the facts.
