Hammer Price:
£360

A pair of sapphire and seed pearl earpendants, the open flowerhead drops centred with round-cut sapphires surrounded by half seed pearls, all millegrained collet set, on a suspension of linked millegrained collet set seed pearls, from similarly set round-cut sapphire surmount, to later stud fittings, earpendant length 28mm. £300-360

The sapphires are a bright and vivid light-mid blue, showing slight wear only. The half seed pearls show a little variation in colour and some wear. The mounts have been adapted - the connecting link between the top most pearl and the one beneath has been repaired/adapted on both earrings, and the stud fittings are later. The mounts are yellow gold, but remain unmarked and untested.
