Victorian Sapphire & Old Cut Diamond Drop Earrings, circa 1870
Impossibly pretty. Each of the highly detailed and intricately designed earrings holds eleven old cut diamonds – rubover and milgrain set – and two curved lines of calibre cut sapphires. With four articulated parts, these striking drop earrings hang beautifully. A triumph.
The original Victorian screw backs can be replaced with modern posts and butterflies if you would prefer (for no added cost).
