Story

There is a type of earring referred to as “dormeuse” or sleeper earrings. So comfortable that wearing them to sleep causes no discomfort whatsoever. The construction of the back to front ear wires is such that no pressure is ever placed on the earlobes as the front of the earring is directly attached to the lever back wire.

This truly petite pair of 14k rose gold features an old European cut diamond of an estimated .10 carats in a flower motif setting. A scalloped perimeter adds a touch of visual interest to the prong set diamonds.

Date: Circa 1900.
