EXCELLENT. These Victorian Silver faceted Carnelian drop earrings are in excellent antique condition! The gemstones have been lovingly crafted - cut, faceted and polished by hand over 100 years ago. They are smooth, semi-translucent, and show the most glorious array of painterly burnt sienna, tab, and milky layers that show the natural growth of the mineral. There are no chips, cracks or imperfections, swaying to beautiful effect. We believe the Sterling silver tops may be more recent replacements, but pair perfectly with the age and style of the earrings.
