Unknown. Estate sale.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a lovely pair of vintage earrings. The earrings are made with marcasite, natural pearls, black onyx beads and sterling silver. The design of the earrings indicates that they were made around the 1960s-1970s when this type of earrings were fashionable. They are very decorative and appears to be in fairly good condition. The materials used for the earrings are in the less expensive category which is reflected on the estimate.
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 earrings. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
