Glitterati - Diamond Solitaire Earrings 1.4 C
Diamond stud earrings are on the list right up there with triple layer chocolate cake as items we most crave. Diamonds or chocolate? Hmmm...let’s go for the diamonds in this irresistible pair of Edwardian solitaire studs.
The old European cut diamond possesses great overall depth and has a look all its own. Its smaller table and larger crown function in the manner of a prism to break up light and create a panorama of spectral colors. These old European diamonds are approximately .70 carats each. The duo is smashing, white and shimmering. One has H-I color and clarity of VS1-2; the other is J-K in color and also VS1-2 in clarity.
The elegant luxurious 10k rose gold mount pays homage to the noble diamond and the crown setting with its twisted scalloping border gently embraces each gem with six claws. Screw back fittings provide the excellent security befitting such beauties.
Measurements: 5/16 of an inch (0.8 cm) in diameter. Weight of 1.4 grams (1.9 dwt)for the pair not including ear nuts.
Date: Circa 1910
Note: All diamond weights, color grades and clarity are approximate since the stones were not removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting.
