Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
It is a beautiful pair of 14 kt gold earrings. The design of the earrings is very trendy and classic at the same time. The small twist decoration makes them extra smart. I am not able to identify the mark ET as it could both be a makersmark or a company mark. And in particular when there are no gold marks to help identify the country of origin. It is difficult to determine when the earrings were made as they are fashionable today. However my guess would be that they were made within the last 25 years.
I believe that this lovely pair of earrings would attract the attention of both collectors and dealers if it came up for auction. The price may go up if the earrings are very heavy.
The estimate provided is for a well-advertised specialised online jewellry 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 smart gold earrings. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I’m happy to help.
