Diamond Earrings; 2.40 Carats ,18K Gold, Platinum Topped , Circa 1920

Florette- shaped diamond cluster drops suspended by links of three more diamonds , are attached to diamond surmounts set in fine mille grain detailed platinum over eighteen carat yellow gold. ....... All combined to make up this exquisite pair of diamond earrings.

Vintage 1920, European , unmarked, acid tested, each earring possesses well over one carat of diamonds . ( I've estimated the total per earring to around 1.20 points , ( they may be slightly more.) All original , European -cut diamonds , thirteen stones in each earring. The largest in the slightly stepped center approximately twenty-five points , surrounded with eight more stones estimated at ten points each, suspended by the aforementioned three diamond 'links' at five points each, all culminating in a ten point diamond- studded surmount . With hinged lever -backs that snap nicely in place , always a favorite earring closure for their comfort and ease of getting on and wearing all day and all night. ......

Regarding the four C's......cut, clarity, color and carat . ......If you've read my listings for vintage and antique diamond earrings before then you know I give relatively short shrift to modern standards for old diamonds. As a believer it is the sum of the parts that makes old diamond jewelry beautiful. That said, this pair 'reads' white to my eye , and sparkles plenty. When louped under ten power magnification carbon spots are visible especially in the largest center stones........ Regarding, cut, I'm always a fan of the old , and as for size, this pair at 2.40 TDW makes the grade. ......
