c1880 Taille D'Epargne Ruby Brooch and Earrings Parure
An pristine parure from around 1880 in its original leather box! This set makes the integrity of gold and gemstones ever more apparent next to its now shabby chic container. The 14k gold set of a brooch and earrings is adorned with beautiful black taille d'epargne enameling and lovely ruby cabochon cut stones. They are in excellent condition, aside from an attractive patina that shows their age. Their design is unique and distinctly Victorian. The brooch may go well converted as a pendant: a service we are happy to offer. The earrings measure 1 1/4 inches long and 3/4 inch wide. The brooch is 2 1/2 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide.
