This elegant and wearable pair of gold Indian earrings are set with six flat diamonds each, in kundan settings. The upper sections are bordered by tiny pearls and the lower sections have strands of suspended pearls, tiny emeralds, and a central ruby bead.
The gold backs and sides are decorated with red enamel.
The earrings have fish-hook tops for pierced ears.
The earrings are likely to date to the mid-19th century and are northern Indian in style.
The earrings are stable, wearable and without losses or repairs. Each pearl is intact as are all the other stones.
