Mid Century 1.74 Carat Sapphire & 1.59 Carat Diamond Drop Earrings, circa 1950
Dramatically beautiful sapphire and diamond earrings. The beautifully crafted top part, loosely designed as wing, is set with seventeen eight-cut diamonds and leads, via an articulated brilliant-cut diamond set chain, to a sapphire and diamond drop. Each pear drop is centred by a light purplish blue natural sapphire which floats within a surround of sixteen eight-cut diamonds.
Secured with hinged clips (for non pierced ears), but these can be changed for posts and butterflies on request.
