Vintage 9ct Gold and Garnet Screw-on Earrings by Oblo
 
The vintage 9ct yellow gold earrings are screw-on and are in a flower shape. They are each set with six round-cut garnet (centre garnet approximately 3.5mm diameter – 0.16ct; 5 surrounding garnets approximately 1.8mm diameter – circa 0.02ct each – total 0.52ct garnet for the pair). The earrings are marked “9CT”. The earrings are in the same style as a brooch (code BG071) which is marked with the maker’s name OBLO. The earrings are clearly made by the same maker.
OBLO is a name found on some jewellery made in South Africa in the second half of the 20th Century. It appears to be a family-owned jewellery maker which also operates in Australia.
