Victorian 2.55 Carat Old Cut Diamond & Black Enamel Cluster Earrings, French, circa 1900
A startlingly beautiful pair of antique diamond earrings. Each earring is set with a old cut diamond of just under 0.50 carat surrounded by a further eight, slightly smaller, stones. All the diamonds (graded as E to F) are bright, lively and colourless – their whiteness strikingly emphasised by the border of black enamel on the outside. Dramatic – and of the highest quality.
Secured with hinged clips (for non pierced ears), but these can be changed for posts and butterflies on request. This would be included in the price.
Accompanied by an independent jewellery report from IGR (#30307245).
