Vintage earrings ear clips. 14k gold, diamonds and coral. Made in Russia between 1958 and 1994. Independent appraisal. Measurements: Weight is 9.6 grams. 2.62ct diamonds. Description : Oval, cabochon deep orange-red coral surrounded by a border of diamonds. Raised above an openwork lattice of gold. Clasps are typically Russian of the Soviet period and very secure. Marks and Metal: Russian hallmarks as follows: 86 with Russian letter for maker's initial. A 3-lobed mark that we are not familiar with but could be the Assay office. A reserve containing the Cyrilic letter B (like a 5 or 6) followed by the star containing hammer and sickle and then 583 which is the Russian mark for 14k gold. One of the earrings also has an engraved 15. According to the book on World Hallmarks Vol I by Whetstone, Niklewics and Matula, the star with hammer and sickle was used in Soviet Russia between 1958 and 1994. The person who sold me these earrings believed they date to the early part of this period, possibly made by one of the old Imperial jewelry houses that survived the Revolution. Condition: Good with minor wear commensurate with age. Please see enlarged pictures and don't hesitate to ask questions which we will do our best to answer. Independent appraisal available to new owner.
