Demantoid Garnet in Mid Century, Portugese, 19k Gold Earrings



These vintage earrings are crafted of fine, 19k gold. 19k, or 800 gold, is 80% pure, as compared to 18k, which is 75% pure, or 14k which is 58.5% pure. At one time 19k was the standard for a large part of Europe, but now it is mostly found in Portugal and Italy!

These earrings are from the 1960's to 1970's. They are very well crafted, with locking, hinged posts and lever backs. The red glass stones at the center are original to the piece, but we've replaced the larger stones with rare, beautiful, valuable Demantoid Garnets.

These beautiful green stones are Demantoid Garnet. First discovered in the Ural Mountains of Russia in the 1860's, Demantoid Garnet is a variety of garnet that is shaded green by trace elements present during the formation of the stone.
