Art Deco Carved Large Apple Jade & Diamond Earrings
Absolutely exquisite Chinese apple jade earrings from the Art Deco (ca1920) era! These striking earrings are particularly large in size and portray a rounded rectangular, carved apple jade plaque. Each earring begins with a smooth jade ring, which is bezel set in 18kt yellow gold and attaches to an omega clip earrings post. Hanging from the jade ring is a single sparkling, baguette diamond link which weighs approximately .35ct each. Connecting the jade ring and diamond to the large rectangular jade stone is a lovely gold topper, which has an intricate leaf motif. The large jade plaque is intricately hand carved with a lovely floral design and has wonderful, vibrant apple jade coloring! The piece has a wonderful and unusual design and would make a perfect addition to any jade collection!
