VERY GOOD-GOOD: These rare Austro-Hungarian Turquoise drop earrings are in great antique condition throughout. All of the gemstones are securely set and there are no signs of major wear to note. We suspect that some of the Turquoise gems have been replaced within its long life, but this is very common in antique Turquoise jewellery. This isn't damage or wear, but one of the natural Pearls has been drilled. We believe that this is likely from the original jeweller, who was re-using gems from previous jewellery suites - just like modern upcycling! We have added antique style solid 9ct Gold hooks, promising you many more years of assured wear, but in keeping with the earrings original look and feel.
