Presented is a pair of large gold earrings, with inset carvings of a Chinese dragon's face. The carving has lovely cross-hatching and graining to it, very attractive next to the smoothness of the gold, probably intended to be reminiscent of dragon scales. There is some variation in the carvings between the two earrings, due to the hand-worked nature of the piece.These are quite sizable earrings, but the clip-on back holds them on securely, and they're surprisingly comfortable as well. The reverse of each earring is stamped 14k and a maker's mark "HF". The earrings are in great overall condition. The clip-on style backs are in good shape and have a strong spring mechanism, so the earrings can be worn securely. The details on the carving are clear.
There are no chips or breaks to the carved material, and no splits or repairs to the gold. These earrings weigh 41.3 grams in total. We estimate approximately half of that weight is the gold setting, around 20-25 grams of gold.Powered by SixBit's eCommerce Solution.
