Floral Shimmer - Old Mine Cut Diamond Earrings
Old mine diamonds are a cut of diamond used primarily in the 18th and 19th centuries. By the early 20th century its reign began to wane. With the advent of the bruting machine (which allowed a more precise cut), the old European cut replaced it. Yet fans of the old mine cut are ever strong as its character, life and warm sparkle cannot be matched.
A .07 carat diamond is the central element of each of these petite and delicate stud earrings (which have a total diamond estimated weight of .14 carats). The mount is a six-petal flower motif of 10k rose gold. The design allows small chambers of rippled gold that create a contrast between the icy diamonds, flat little strips of gold and the darker recessed areas.
Condition: Very good with the screw back earrings posts changed to regular posts.
Measurements: 5/16 of an inch (7.5 mm) in diameter. This pair of antique earrings has a weight of 1.3 grams not including the ear backs and 1.9 gram with backs.
Date: Circa 1900
Note: All diamond weights are approximate since the stones were not removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting.
