A beautiful pair of art deco era diamond and salt water earrings.
The diamonds are bezel set in 9 k (hallmarked 375) yellow gold, tipped with rhodium.
The diamond setting is attached to a knife edge extension which is a feature of art deco earrings. The knife edge is a flat shape with millegrain edges.
The tear drop salt water pearl is articulated and delicately moves with the wearer's movement.
The pearls are 8 mm long (1/3 inch), the diamonds are 1 mm in diameter (1/24 inch).
Simple lines and form were a highly prized feature of art deco art, architecture, fashion and jewelry. These elegant earrings are a lovely example of art deco.
The total drop of these earrings is 20 mm or 5/6 inch. They weigh 2 grams.
