Vintage Sterling Silver, Gold Vermeil & Green Chrysoprase Hinged Hoop Pierced Earrings #c838
These beautiful hoop earrings are comprised of gold vermeil, sterling silver and green chrysoprase stone. They feature gold vermeil silver bases that wrap around gorgeous green chrysoprase stones. The edges of the hoops are lined with lovely rope details and each end is adorned with a scalloped cap. The ear wires are raised and operate with a tube style hinge. The ends of the ear wires are received into hollow tubes on the opposite side of the hinge to affix them to the ear. They are glorious green beauties!

The earrings measure about 7/8 inch in diameter, have a drop of approximately 1 inch with the ear wires and are 1/4 inch wide. They weigh 6.0 grams and are marked "Silver" and with a maker's mark of a letter "M" inside a triangle symbol that I could not definitively identify. They acid tested as sterling silver and the stones tested in the chrysoprase range on a Presidium gem tester.

These green and gold hoops are classic "must-have" earrings for every jewelry collection. Their beautiful detailing and fine construction are quite evident when you hold them and they look fabulous on! The earrings are in excellent, vintage condition with a few areas of light tarnish. There is an area on the stone of one hoop where a natural, lighter colored, horizontal occlusion runs through (photo #8). This is not a crack and is an inherent variation of natural stones and is mentioned for listing accuracy only. They are a splendid find!

THIS IS NOT A CRACK AND IS AN INHERENT VARIATION OF NATURAL STONES AND MENTIONED FOR LISTING ACCURACY ONLY.
