A lovely pair of dangle estate earrings for pierced ears. The naturalistic, yet modern design shows of two natural mid blue sapphire gemstones which are facetted in a pear shape, and eight small bright natural diamonds.
The stones have been set into a slightly raised 'branch' design with a rhodium plated finish for white gold look. The entire earrings are made in solid 14ct yellow gold with one butterfly clip being replaced over the years with a gold plate one. Adding extra style to these earrings is the combination of matte and high polished surface to front.
Whilst wearing, the elongated and concave design sways as you walk- the lower section is nicely complimented with the upside-down tear shaped stud. Butterfly clips attached at back.
A well looked after pair of earrings with hardly any wear evident.
