Once more, I am selling an item that it from my own personal collection, and which I love. I have just bought another pair of earrings for myself, though, which were quite expensive, so I have decided to sell this pair I have had and loved since 1999. They are rose cut diamonds, set in silver, but the earrings are backed in gold. They are the French front to back wires, which I found difficult when I bought these earrings, but which I now really like for their security. There are 24 rose cut diamonds in each earring, if I have not counted incorrectly. They measure 1 and 7/8 inches long, and a little over 1/2 inch wide. I love the bow motif, and these are really beautiful on. I hate to give them up, but feel I must. They are really pretty and feminine. They are circa 1870.
