Phenomenal wearable art. Circa 1930s, these hand fabricated earrings are timeless - they are just as beautiful today as they were 80 years ago.
Crafted in precious platinum (the clip back has been replaced with 14k yellow gold). Set with forty-three diamonds in each earring. And using a variety of diamond shapes - square emerald cut, Old European cut, baguette, and finishing off with incredible briolettes.
The design is reminiscent of a French style - and fit for royalty! Absolutely stunning design. Notice how the edges of the metal have delicate milgrain detail. And the center row of diamonds are independently attached and dangle, shimmering with your every movement.
The bottom diamond is called a briolette. It is an elongated drop-shape, with faceting over the entire diamond. They are usually drilled at the top so they can dangle. They were a popular antique cut for diamonds. And they are wonderful used in earrings. These briolettes measure approximately 6.6 x 3.5mm, with an estimated weight of .80ct each, for a total weight of 1.60ctw.
The twenty-six Old European cut diamonds in each earring are estimated at .70ctw, for a total of fifty-two, totaling 1.40ctw of glimmering diamonds. There are sixteen baguette diamonds in each earring, estimated at .32ctw, for a total of thirty-two for a total weight of .64 ctw. Up at the top there is a square emerald cut diamond being about .06ct, for a total weight of .12 ctw in the earrings
The estimated total carat weight is 3.76 ctw. The diamonds are very nice with an average clarity of VS1-VS2, and color of H-J. So many beautiful glittering antique diamonds!
We hope you love these earrings as much as we do. This pair is extremely special.
