Vintage 14K Yellow Gold Filled Carved Montana Agate Boot Pierced Earrings, AntiqueConversion #c934
This fabulous pair of earrings are comprised of beautiful Montana agate and 14K gold-filled findings. From the quality construction and style of the gold-filled hardware attached to the stones, I believe the dangles are from the late Edwardian to early Art Deco period, circa the 1910s-1920s.

The earrings feature gorgeous carved Montana agate boots in banded colors of caramel, brown, orange and white. The boots hang from lovely handwrought ivy leaf bails to which I have added new 14K gold-filled lever backs. The earrings came to me with gold-tone screw back findings that were in very poor condition and were most likely a mid-century conversion from their original ear wires. They are absolutely enchanting!

The earrings measure about 1 1/2 inches long, 1/2 inch wide and weigh 2.6 grams. The bails of the boots are unmarked and the new lever backs are hallmarked "1/20 14K" on the sides.

This is such a delightful pair of earrings! I'm glad to know that the new ear findings will give these earrings a new life, allowing them to be enjoyed for years and years to come. They would make a fine addition to a vintage jewelry collection and a great gift. The earrings are in excellent condition and ready to wear!
