Art Deco Sapphire & Diamond Lotus Drop Earrings, circa 1925
Very, very beautiful indeed. A bright, cornflower blue natural sapphire rests in the centre of a stylised star lotus setting, crafted from two overlapping lines of old cut diamonds. An articulated linking bar, featuring a trio of cabochon sapphires, leads to a three-stone diamond set post. A glorious design realised with top grade gems.
