Materials: natural earth-mined diamonds, solid 22-24K yellow gold (tests as 24K gold in four locations via electronic gold tester; 24k acid testing solution unavailable, but holds strongly under nitric-muriatic acid for 22K gold)
Weight: 15.5 grams
Height: 55 mm (2.16 in)
Width (at maximal point): 31 mm
Diameter of diamonds: 2.5-3.3 mm for six largest, 0.8 – 1.25 mm for the remaining twenty-two (I clarity; unable to grade for color or weight due to tight closedback settings & irregular cuts)
Condition: pristine antique condition, unusually well-preserved for the age and high-carat gold construction. Original forward-catch ear wires, details still crisp, no damaged or missing elements, no sign of replaced stones, no signs of later restorations or alterations. Overall it’s difficult to find this type in such great condition.
