Sterling Silver Amber Heart Earrings, Pierced, 2.5" Long, 23.30 Grams
Sterling Silver Amber Heart Earrings - these are 2.5" long from the curve in the post and 1.5" wide at the widest point. They weigh 23.30 grams. They have a leaf accented wrap on the one side of the heart. Statement earrings. The amber heart is 32mm long at center and 34mm wide at the widest point from the bail down it is 1.75". There are round snowflake looking inclusions inside the amber along with the normal bubbles and pieces of matter. I am not sure if this is true amber or created. It does pass the static test as well as the warmth test - I will not hot needle test it as any test area would be visible. I generally assume it is copal unless I know where it came from if it is marked. It is not signed but it has been tested. It tests as .925 sterling. Very nice quality and design. They are in very good condition - very light tarnish but great as it is, although it could be polished brighter if that is your preference. Age is post mid-century. I've seen similar earrings, not as ornate sell for $98.00, some higher. This came from a PA auction/estate sale. See photos. Lot Loc. W.11.1018.G.1X7 - LD/16/18.
We carry mostly vintage jewelry across all themes in my stores and listings. We have our own store and are and have been known as stampshopgirl in Ebay and have been since I think 2003. At one point we had a gift shop/rubber stamping store and switched over to vintage jewelry about six years ago on a full time basis, which also including taking and completing gemology classes as well as jewelry appraisal studies. We carry limited other vintage items and am trying to change our presence to marias vintage and estate treasures. You may see both names until the migration is complete. You can find us on pinterest where all ebay items and other venues are categorized - mariasvinta0654.
If the item is over $50.00 for international mailing will need be sent with insurance at the buyer’s cost. That may require separate invoicing.
WE DO NOT STORE FINE METALS AND GEMSTONES ON PREMISES. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT QUESTIONS MAY NOT BE ABLE TO BE ANSWERED IMMEDIATELY. THANK YOU.
Thank you for stopping by, mariasvintage.
Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.
I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.
Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
