Story

Day night earrings are loved because they are so versatile. Typically a two element earring of surmount and pendant drop, there is a little mechanism on the back which allows the drop to be removed and the surmount worn separately. As the name implies, the less formal surmount is worn during the daytime and to create a more elegant earring for an evening occasion the pendant is added.

Adding to that versatility is the beauty of Italian design. The earring is a visual delight in yellow gold of 9k and natural Italian coral. The pendant drop employs an inverted cone configuration consisting of a large circular piece of faceted natural coral capped with a gold finial with corded wire border and scalloped edge. A gold leaf form has been applied to the surface giving a nicely defined three-dimensional accent. The surmount features a faceted cabochon of natural coral set within a triple tiered border with twisted wire work and an engraved bezel. Back to front ear wires finish the earring.
