Russian Demantoid Drop Earrings
circa 1910 (ear pendants) with replaced closures (modern)
The earrings feature a pair of large demantoid garnets. Russian Ural Mountain demantoids over 2 carats are very rare in general, and it is extremely rare to see jewelry with two well matched demantoids, over 2.5 ct each.
These earrings are not only rare and beautiful, they also represent an excellent investment opportunity.
Handcrafted in silver and pink 14K gold, embellished with two bright white European cut diamonds (approximately 0.32 ct each) and 8 old mine diamonds. Estimated total diamond weight – 1 carat.
Two oval old cut demantoids are 2.59 ct and 2.83 ct., total weight – 5.42 ct. Both stones have “horsetail” inclusions typical for demantoids from Russian Ural Mountains. The earrings come with two AGL gemstone reports (see below).
