Dating from about 1970, a pair of diamond dangle earrings, each about 1 7/8" long, ending in a round cultured mabe' pearl measuring 18 mm. in diameter.
They are beautifully well-made front and back in 14k white gold, as tested. The foliate-designed top and middle sections are bead- and prong-set with twenty eight single cut diamonds weighing about 0.50 carat total, having mostly H color and clarity in the SI range.
The diamonds dance with brilliance above the cream colored mabe (assembled) pearls and contrast with their soft luster. The pearls are glued onto bezels with openwork backing plates.
The lever backs are in good order; so are the jump rings that give the earrings freedom of movement. The total item weighs 10.4 pennyweights, of which about 7.5 pennyweights are in the gold.
These earrings may have been the practice piece of a very skilled apprentice jeweler. They will complement you casual outfit with a unique sense of style.
