These earrings are so beautifully done! In Victorian times, the buttercup was a symbol of cheerfulness and positivity. These earrings are just over 10mm and the petals are textured. the centre is a prong setting with a very nice old european cut diamond which is 2mm across for a total weight of approximately 8 points.The diamonds are very white and nice quality. The earring backs are pierced with screw backings. These are replacements and one is not gold. The earrings are not marked but test positive for gold of 14k (guaranteed). The condition is very good.
