Incredible Midcentury Moroccan Style 22k Gold and Turquoise Earrings
These unbelievably impressive earrings are solid 22k gold! Made in or around the 1960s they are very likely the most elegant version of Boho-chic I’ve ever seen. The gold is dense with a buttery, warm hue and the Persian turquoise is a gorgeous, soft greenish-blue. The intricate cannetille work was done by hand and adds a beautiful texture. The pendant portion swings gently from the decorative top while the turquoise drop moves independently of the pendant. The tops are fitted with posts for pierced ears. There are no hallmarks present but the gold does test positively as 22k. The length from the post to the bottom point of the pendant is 2-5/8”. And the pendant at the widest point measures 1”. They are incredibly sturdy earrings with a quality weight yet not so heavy as to be uncomfortable...you know you’re wearing them but they don’t pull or drag your ear down! (Each earring weighs 13.8g) These truly are remarkable. Such a beautiful style and so beautifully made!!
