These sparkling 18 carat gold and diamond stud earrings belong to a friend of mine. I took them to a jewellers for a thorough appraisal and my description is partly based on that.
The diamonds are round, brilliant cut measuring 3.6mms-3.7mms. They have a total diamond weight of approximately 0.35 carat with colour approximately J-K clarity S11-2.
They have simple four claw collets with post and scroll fittings for pierced ears. They are not hallmarked but test as 18 carat yellow gold. Their gross weight is 0.8 grams. The nuts are marked 'England Soude'
The English jeweller valued these earrings at the equivalent of $1500.
This classic style always looks elegant and their intense sparkle adds a touch of glamour. They were hardly ever , if at all worn, and are in excellent condition. They will arrive carefully presented in a gift box.
