EXCELLENT-VERY GOOD: These antique French 18ct Gold Paste dormeuse lever-back earrings are in sublime condition. Both Paste gems are secure with the 18ct Gold claws, and the hooks are working just as they should. These are a great pair of earrings for everyday sparkle and glamour. There is a small ding inside one of the decorative spheres, but this is not noticeable unless viewing the earrings with a jeweller's loupe - and certainly can't be seen when worn! What a wonderful pair of 18ct Gold French antique earrings!
