I have been trying to find out more about a pair of earrings my Great Aunt Carolyn gave me many years ago, if she were alive she would be 105 years old!
When she gave me the earrings she told me they had belonged to her mother's sister, and showed me a note written by "Aunt Gen, Mother's Sister."
The note reads:
"These ear drops belonged to mother's sister, Aunt Christina, who would be over a hundred years old." The pearls are approx 7.5 mm.
There is nothing on the c clasp to indicate the type of metal. I have had several people tell me they are white gold. The only print on the c clasp, or screwback,is on the outside of the screw which is a "C". To be more than 100 years of age these earrings are in mint condition. They have not been worn since given to me, I have kept them in a box in my jewelry box. I may wear them if they were pierced.
I tried to get a good photo of the C, it can barely be made out.
