Very convincing French Art deco vintage imitation Coral drop Earrings with gold plated most likely vermeil on silver leverback fittings for pierced ears. The faux material for the drops has a granular texture x 10 and lightweight – possibly hollow glass with a filled core but cannot be certain. It does not have the weight of a glass chandelier drop. The drops measure 30 x 7 mm, the cabochon 6 mm diameter, total earring length 42 mm (1 3/4). Weight 3.1 grams. The sprung leverback fittings have a fluted domed back and rounded wires the same in detail as the ones found on 1920’s imitation souffle pearls – a hollow glass shell lined with a pearly essence and filled with wax. The colour and soft shine of the surface are very close to the preferred French choice in Mediterranean Coral of a soft salmon orange shade which was used for Empire diadems, paired bracelets and waist buckles etc – rather than the the stronger Italian Red Coral with a high gloss finish. Very attractive antique appearance when worn – only you will know they are not genuine organic coral!
