Edwardian Platinum/18kt Natural Sapphire + Diamond Earrings 5.00ctw centers
A breathtaking pair of natural sapphire and diamond earrings from the Edwardian (ca1910s) era! These exquisite earrings are crafted in platinum-topped 18kt yellow gold and have an elegant, feminine design. Each earring features a generously sized oval sapphire that rests in the center of a sparkling diamond and sapphire border. The large sapphires emit a stunning deep blue color and rest in a milgrained bezel setting, collectively weighing approximately 5.00ctw between both stones. Encircling the sapphires is a border of sparkling old European Cut diamonds, followed by curved sections of calibrated sapphires, forming the outermost border. The earrings dangle from diamond drop extensions, which connect to beautiful surmounts and lever back tops. Accompanying the earrings is a Prestige Gemstone Report issued by AGL (American Gemological Laboratories) in June 2015. An outstanding pair of Edwardian earrings, they would look magnificent worn on special occasions, and would make a dazzling addition to any collection!
Measurements: Each earring hangs 1 1/2" long, is 1/2" at the widest point and has a depth of 1/8". The sapphire dimensions are as follows: 9.9 x 7.8 x 3.23 mm, and 9.7 x 7.5 x 3.21 mm.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the platinum and gold setting, and all of the sapphires and diamonds are intact. The lever backs are secure and in good working condition.
