Diamonds are girl's best friends. Well, these sparkly Edwardian era diamonds definitely are !! They frame your face with light, they dance with your every movement and you can't help but smile every time you see yourself in the mirror. Bit of a drawback.....people get distracted by them while talking to you, but.... we are sure this will not put you off loving them :)
These stunning continental European earrings are hand crafted in 14 carat gold and platinum. They are hallmarked 585 on the posts and weigh a very comfortable 3.08 grams. The butterflies are a later addition and are marked 750 for 18 carat gold. The 14 carat yellow gold forms the underside of the earrings while a layer of platinum is used for the top of the diamond settings and the bar in a typically Edwardian fashion. The earrings are articulated to allow movement of the bar both from the top and at the bottom by the diamond drop. This makes them follow your movement ever so gracefully, allowing the diamonds to show off their beauty to the full. The gemstones are certificated - we will email you a copy by request and they will be sold with the original. The main diamonds are estimated to weigh 1.90 carats together and are G-H colour and VS1 clarity. They measure 6.4 and 6.5 mm in diameter. The certificate states their cut as Very Good and they are a beautifully matched pair. The tops are set with two oval old cut diamonds with a total weight estimated at 0.75 carats, VS1 and E-F colour. Two small rose cut diamonds are also set mid-bar. All gemstones are original to the earrings and in great condition, as is the whole piece and the total weight is estimated to be 2.65 carats. They are very elegantly wearable being 1.28 inches long. They dangle prettily as long earrings should without being overwhelming.
We love ...... the simple, understated elegance of these earrings. They are opulent without overwhelming your face - you are the fabulous painting, they are the frame......
