These are the sellers photos. I bought these earrings last night, I probably won't be seeing them for a while because I'm sending them to a friends UK address, because the postage to Spain is very expensive.
Well here is my handle on these earrings. I think the Opals are from the White Cliff mines in Australia, the colours are amazing, the opals are 1.3 cm in diameter, and doublets. I hope the colours are like that in real life. I've been reading Kiwipauls posts on Opals with great interest, I hope you let me know if my verdict is correct Kiwipaul.
They are in my opinion Art and Craft. The silver mount are to me simple leaves and flowers with etching in the middle, they have a beaded bezel holding in the Opal. I'm thinking they were probably made in Australia in the 1920-30s. There are no Marks but have been tested for silver. I would like to change the screw back fittings to pieced.
I know it's very difficult to put a makers name to this type of jewellery, but if anybody has any ideas, it would be much appreciated.
Many thanks for looking
