Edwardian Platinum Cushion Cut Diamond Halo Earrings 6.20ctw
An incredible pair of diamond encrusted earrings from the Edwardian (ca1910) era! The earrings are crafted in platinum and have a spectacular open halo design. Dangling in the center is a luscious cushion mine cut diamond, which is contained within a milgrained bezel. One of the two cushion cut stones weighs approximately 1.35ct and has K color and VS2 clarity, while the other stone also weighs 1.35ct, with J color and SI2 clarity. The spectacular borders are oval in shape, and lined with sparkling mine cut diamonds, which are belcher set. Completing the design is a diamond drop surmount, which attaches to a clasped earring wire at the top. The diamonds that adorn the halo and surmount weigh approximately 3.50ctw combined, with H-K range color and VS-SI range clarity. When worn, the earrings hang with lovely movement and frame the face beautifully! The earrings were appraised by an independent and accredited GIA certified Graduate Gemologist in November 2016 and have a stated retail replacement value of $21,000.00. They would make an outstanding addition to any jewelry collection, and are perfect for special occasions!
