In French, fleur-de-lys means "lily flower." Decorative ornaments that resemble the fleur-de-lys have appeared in artwork from the earliest human civilizations. It has consistently been used as a royal emblem, though different cultures have interpreted its meaning in various ways.
An beautiful pair of Estate fleur-de-lys earrings reminiscent of the Victorian (ca1880) era! These fabulous earrings are each crafted in 14kt yellow gold topped with sterling silver, and form the shape of a feminine fleur-de-lys. The surface is lined with sparkling Rose Cut diamonds, while delicate beaded accents add a lovely eye-catching appeal. The stones are bead set and rest in an open back setting, each one catching the light beautifully with every turn. The diamonds are set in darkened sterling silver, providing a wonderful Victorian era appeal, while the yellow gold is visible from the sides, creating a lovely mixed metals design. Each fleur-de-lys hangs from a diamond shaped topper featuring 4 additional Rose Cut stones, finishing the stunning design. Resting at the back of the topper is a simple post and earring back, stamped with a "14K S" gold purity mark. The earrings dangle with lovely movement and frame the face beautifully, and would make a perfect addition to any collection!
