Art Deco Plat Top 18kt Onyx Crystal & Diamond Earrings
Fantastic onyx, crystal, and diamond earrings from the Art Deco (ca1920) era! Each earring begins with a platinum topped 18kt yellow gold surmount, which holds 8 old Rose Cut diamonds in a milgrain detailed setting. Dangling from the topper is a flower-like link that holds an additional 5 diamonds, with the largest prong set in the center. A flat onyx ring loops through the flower-like link and a gorgeous rock quartz crystal briolette dangles in its center. These fabulously designed earrings hang from gold wires and come in their original, Parisian box. They are simply stunning earrings and would make a lovely addition to any collection!
Measurements: Each earring hangs approximately 2" long. The exterior diameter of the onyx ring measures slightly less than 1" and has a depth of less than 1/8". The crystal briolette measures 1/2" long and slightly more than 1/4" at the widest point.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the platinum topped gold setting or to the onyx and crystal. All of the diamonds are intact and the clasped wires are in good working condition.
