These earrings have 1 emerald (5mm wide x 7mm long) surrounded by 8 diamonds. The earrings seem to be set in yellow gold. These came in a box that says City City May (Emerald.)
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a beautiful pair of gold, emerald and diamond earrings. Such vintage jewellery are being offered at auction on a regular basis.
The earrings have a lovely classic design which makes it hard to determine when they were made as this design has been popular for many years. My guess is that they are from the last part of the 1900s or early 2000s. Based on the photos it is hard to see the size, colour and clarity of the diamonds but together with the emeralds they look very pretty and the design is beautiful and fashionable. I believe that they are made of 14 kt yellow gold.
I believe that this pair of earrings 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 diamond and emerald gold earrings has the best chance of realising its fullest potential. However, there is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the earrings. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
