14k Gold Oval Turquoise Threaded Post Earrings 3.6 Gms Sw Antique Tucson Estate
From a Tucson estate some years ago and an upscale alternative to PreWar Fred Harvey era Southwestern tribal silver jewelry is this visually compelling pair of vintage / antique 14K oval turquoise stud earrings, with threaded post (pierce) fittings and just right for any occasion. The uncommon duo likely came from some Southwestern local jeweler circumstance, perhaps bench made in one of the old downtown shops right here in the Old Pueblo. A pairing of bench crafted gold mountings and slightly domed turquoise cabochons, they reflect the long standing Southwestern penchant for turquoise finery, elevated to another level at some point in the long ago by the use of the yellow precious metal. While there are no apparent stamped markings to the bezel settings (there is a small “V” or arrow mark pin engraved to the back of one), I will personally guarantee they are fine gold. The early stirrup screw nuts do show a raised “14K”. Weight is good for the form at about 3.6 total grams on my portable digital scale. Condition is quite fine with a nice natural aura of time to the clean gold surfaces. The turquoise sets are firm in their settings. One of the screw posts has a very slight bend neat its base – that said, both posts and their stirrup nut fittings are ready for duty. Typical and expected and in this case exceedingly minor signs of occasional period service and long storage provide evidence of a history. A look at the pics should give a good idea of appearance and condition. Size of one is about 19/32 in. Vertical and 15/32 in. The other is about 5/8 in. Vertical and 1/2 in. Horizontal, the slight difference accounted for by their hand crafting. If you collect and wear vintage Southwestern adornment and would prefer a counterpoint in gold, or simply wish this single unarguably noticeable improvement to the ambiance of each day, this will have great meaning for you.
