Antique French Garnet Poissardes Earrings - 18k

Regular price $2,850.00 CAD Sale

A beautiful pair of antique French "poissardes" (transl. "fishwife") earrings. Their name is said to come from either a the female fish sellers who allegedly wore them while selling their goods in Paris markers or, more likely, from their fish hook shape.  This example is set with garnets.

These mid-1800s earrings were crafted in 18k gold and hallmarked with both a maker's mark and eagle head gold hallmark.  They measure about 28mm from top to bottom and have a combined weight of 4.5g. They are in wonderful antique condition. You will receive the pictured earrings.
