Stunning antique Austro Hungarian silver girandole drop earrings in 935 silver with glass paste stones, in an 18th century style. Circa 1910. 935 silver is a bit higher in silver content than sterling, and the designation was used in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. The design and construction are characteristic of Austro Hungarian jewelry. Marked 935. With screwbacks. The stones are held in tiny prong settings. The backs of the earrings are as finely and ornately finished as the fronts. The length is a hair under 2 1/2 inches. Excellent condition with a few dark stones; all stones glitter under low lights and all are better than the pictures. Photos enlarged to show detail.
