Antique Barden & Hull 14k gold earrings with onyx(?) and shell(?). Very heavy, weighing 7.27 grams together. Near perfect condition. B&H mark on back. 14k marks a couple times.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a beautiful pair of 14 kt gold earrings. Such vinage designer jewellery are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
The design and shape of the Barden & Hull earrings is very nice and very trendy. The were made in the early 1900s when materials as enamel were often used for decoration. I believe this is the case with these earrings. They appear to be in very good condition and I believe that they would attract the attention of both collectors and dealers if it came up for auction.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online jewellery auction, where I believe the earrings has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the Barden & Hull earrings. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
