When I just saw (on the earrings site of Collectorsweekly) the same pair of earrings in an auction as I have in my collection in a so called demi-parure I was very surprised. Because I gathered this parure years ago I'm of course always very curious of the bidding value. I'll hope to get in this case the aswer very soon at the ending of this auction.

This demi parure is a pair of 19th century ( probably late circa 1880) Continental Europe Silver Gilt and Diamond set Foliate drop earrings and large pendant, which I think it's originally belonging one piece of a larger necklace.
The form of these juwels , I believe, Ivy leaves set with single rough cut diamonds and from the three leaf spray is suspended a fancy mount drop with another rough cut diamond in the centre. The earrings as the pendant are made from solid silver with a gold /gilt backing and Gold wires.

    Hi Johanna,
    I remember only the earrings cost me $ 155 and they have each four little diamonds. But take into consideration the the brooch need some repair.
    I suggest to ask at least between $ 100-135 for it. But it is always one want to pay for it of course. I'll suggest to sell on eBay.UK the English appreciate such jewels at this moment more than in the US. Good luck!
