Vintage Chinese silver vermeil filigree enamel and lapis lazuli dangle
Chinese handmade sterling silver filigree chandelier earrings with natural lapis lazuli cabochons, and turquoise and blue enameled flowers and leaves which match the gemstones very well. These earrings are sterling silver with a gold vermeil finish on the front. The earrings were originally screw backs and were converted by a jeweler to gold filled posts. The original 925 stamp was on the screw back and due to the conversion is no longer there. The earrings measure approx.1-1/2". The lapis teardrops are approx. 5mm x 3.5mm, and the round cabochons at the post are 4mm in diameter. There are no irregularities to the silver, no chips to the lapis stones, which are smooth, polished with some lovely pyrite inclusions. The finish vermeil finish and the enamel are in excellent condition. Overall this is a finely made and pair of lapis, sterling and enameled earrings.
