Imperial Russian Georgian Gherries Earrings 56 /14K Gold 2.25 ct Diamonds / 7gr - image 1 of 11

A pair of Silver over 56 / 14K Rose Gold late Imperial Russian /Georgian Cherries Earrings set with old diamond cut Russian Diamonds.

Аpparently this pair was made after an 18th cent. pair that used to belong to Russian Empress Catherine the Second.Those original diamond earrings formed a part of the wedding dress for imperial family brides.

“The earrings were so heavy that in the middle of the banquet I took them off and, much to the emperor's amusement, hung them on the edge of the glass of water standing in front of me,” Maria Pavlovna (1890-1958) recalled of her wedding day.

Last image of the gallery show that original pair from Moscow Kremlin Armoury’s State Diamond Fund.

The earrings are marked with Russian Imperial ca. 1907 -1917 period hallmarks featuring heads of a woman, 56 with assay mark of Georgian Tiflis city. Definitely fine example of old Russian jewelry making school of early XX century.

This model is called " Вишни "/ in Russian or " Cherries " because of original design with very flexible pendant sections with petioles, leaves and fruits :) Very secure Russian closure locks that close with a click.

There are 14 old hand diamond cut diamond stones with open backs ranging in sizes between ca. Ø 3 mm/0.11ct. to ca. Ø 5 mm / 0.46 ct and 10 minor rose cuts with backs closed.

Total : ca. 2.25 ctw. Color ca. G,H , VS inclusions. One stone demonstrates a peculiar inclusion located inside of its body in the very middle point of its table. When observed from the front it looks like a single dot, but from the back side its reflections on the facets make a clear eight - pointed star ornament visible.

Each sister is 4.5 cm long including the lock. Weight : 7 grams pair
