Story

Point of Information: Were you aware that in many countries there is a set standard for crown configurations for specific levels of royalty? The crown of a duke is quite different from that of a Queen or marquis. In Great Britain there are multiple forms depending upon title or rank according to the long standing rules and regulations of Heraldry.

However, to wear this pair of 15k yellow matte gold English earrings today no title of peerage or of nobility is necessary. Lovely mid Victorian style with a two-part design, the overall manner speaks of archaeological revival influence (ancient motifs) with beaded borders and twisted wire accents. The surmount is a round disc with a centered old mine cut diamond in a star setting. A corded rope perimeter adds a perfect edge to the form.

The pendant is a teardrop flattering to virtually every shape of face. It is set with a stylized crown consisting of five (5) faceted natural rubies of an estimated total .35 carats for the pair and five (5) rose cut diamonds with a total estimated weight of .20 carats for both earrings. The border of the drop echoes that of the surmount with twisted wire work and beading. The earrings are light and have that sought after medium length – for the royal in all of us.

Date: Circa 1860.
