A beautiful, classic pair of Art Deco earclips, featuring diamonds and sapphires set in a knot motif, meticulously hand-crafted in platinum-topped, 14kt gold. The center diamond in each earclip is approximately 0.08ct, and the total diamond carat weight in both earclips comes to an estimated 0.27ct. The accent sapphires are likely lab-created, or synthetic sapphire -- an extremely common occurrence in early 20th century jewelry, when synthetic ruby and sapphire was seen as a very modern and chic development. Indeed, it is unlikely that when these marvelous earclips were first sold, that the jeweler even indicated the sapphires were not natural! Crafted in 14kt gold, with an open work, platinum-topped setting, the smaller diamonds and sapphires are set in hand-applied, millegrain-edged channels, while the center, Old European cut diamonds are bezel-set with millegrain-edging. Simply a gorgeous pair of earclips that will bring a timeless sophistication and elegance to that special outfit.
Total weight of these sparkling Art Deco earclips is 5.5 grams. The mounting is 14kt gold, stamped "585" and acid-tested. The "knot" setting is crafted of platinum, acid-tested. Two Old European cut diamonds center the earclips, weighing approximately 0.08ct each, with an estimated J/VS2 color and clarity. An additional 56 rose-cut accent diamonds, and 12 calibre-cut, lab-created sapphires, embellish the setting. The earclips have clip backs, not for pierced ears. The earclips measure approximately 9/16" across. (Weights and measurements are estimated, as permitted by mounting).
These stunning Art Deco earclips will arrive in a fine quality presentation box.
