Story

The late 19th or early 20th century was named for the British monarch Edward VII. The Edwardian period was characterized by a few easily recognized innovations. First, the use of platinum and the mille grain work or tiny ridged borders around gems. White on white was the color theme utilizing mostly diamonds or pearls.

Earrings are always one of the most sought after and scarcest of all jewelry forms. In this stand out earring example, diamond drops are constructed in three parts. Old European cuts along with old single cuts - thirty one (31) diamonds in all - dot each earring. The total estimated diamond weight is 1 carat for each or 2 carats for the pair. The color of diamonds range from I-K and have a VS2-SI1 clarity range. All are white, brilliant and dazzling. Fantastic long dangles in an ultimately flattering teardrop shape are artfully fashioned with another hallmark of the era - lace like open, platinum work.

Date: Circa 1910 with the top diamond and its setting custom made for the drops.

THE FINE PRINT

Due to the nature of antique & vintage jewelry, many diamond and gemstone weights are calculated by measurements, not removed. Actual weights are noted in the item’s description. Grading of diamonds and gemstones may vary slightly when removed.

HONESTY

Being as honest as possible about the items we represent for sale is our ultimate goal! Our pricing is industry recognized as fair and equitable with value as the byword.


Measurements: 1-7/8 inches (4.6 cm) in length by 7/16 of an inch (1.1 cm) at the widest. Weight of 7.7 grams (5.0 dwt) including ear nuts for the pair.

Condition: Very good; top diamond surmount and post is modern and custom made for the earrings. One bezel of the diamond below top diamond is slightly out of round and visible with magnification.

Note: Diamonds have not been removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting. All diamond weights have been approximated by measurement and formula and may vary from actual weights. Grading has been done in situ and also may vary if stones are removed.
