Art Deco 4.24 Carat Old Cut Diamond Drop Earrings, circa 1915
An extravagantly beautiful pair of early Art Deco diamond earrings. The lever-back tops of the earrings feature a graduating trio of three high white old cut diamonds which are rubover and milgrain set in platinum. The drop is formed by a pair of dangling rubover set stones, with the larger diamond at the bottom displaying a distinct light yellow colour and the one above it a subtle champagne yellow tone. A cleverly designed piece wherein the diamonds are whiter towards the top and larger at the bottom. Pure magnificence.
Accompanied by an independent jewellery report from IGR (#30306901).
