These Art Deco 9ct Gold faceted "sleeper" hoop earrings are a gorgeous pair of dainty huggie earrings for your jewellery box. Crafted from solid 9ct Gold, these earrings are lightly faceted for a touch of sparkle.
Comfortable, lightweight and rosy in tone, these earrings epitomise easy wear. We can just imagine them looking gorgeous paired with some glittering stud earrings too.
ERA: Art Deco, c.1930 - 1950s.
MEASUREMENTS: Earrings are 12.5mm diameter x 1.5mm wide.
Weight: 0.5g combined.
MATERIALS: Solid 9ct Gold.
HALLMARKS: "9",".375", Birmingham Assay, date letter "z" for the year 1949, obscured Maker's Mark on one hoop. "9",".375", Birmingham Assay, date letter "F" for the year 1930, Maker's Mark "M.P" on the other hoop. They are identical hoops just different hallmarked years for some reason.
EXCELLENT: These Art Deco 9ct Gold faceted "sleeper" hoop earrings are in superb condition throughout. There are no signs of wear to either of the earrings and the lightly faceted details are still intact. Unusually, both earrings, although identical, are hallmarked to different years, with one being hallmarked to 1930 and the other hallmarked to 1949. We believe that the original owner probably lost one from of the original 1930s pair and had another made. Nevertheless, their remarkable condition is a testament to their preservation, ready to be worn and loved once again.
