Dangling OEC Diamond Earrings, Silver Front & 18k Gold Back
A gorgeous pair of diamond earrings from the 1890s, made in Italy. The pair of earrings holds 10 diamonds in total, with a TCW of 1.80. The diamonds is bezel set into a silver front, and a gold back earring. The back half is unmarked but tests to 18k gold. The largest diamond on each earring is an old european cut diamond that is 6mm, with a flat cullet, letting in lots of light to create vibrant refractions in the stone. The diamond appears to float as the earring hangs because the silver that surrounds this setting is slightly tarnished, with beading, setting off the diamond and making it look larger. The 6mm diamonds are .84 carats each. From this larger diamond emanate a row of three smaller rose cut diamonds, each measuring 1.5 mm. At the top of each earring, and closest to the ear is another diamond, old european cut, measuring 2mm. The earrings attach with a lever clasp that have a hook so they can be worn safely. They hang about 1 inch in length. The diamonds have very good clarity and are slightly colored: I-K in color. These are old diamonds so they are hand cut, which makes these a very special pair of antique diamond earrings. One of the 6mm diamonds has a slight cleave (only visible by loop) that happened when the diamond was being hand-cut. You can see that it was set this way and this small blemish didn't effect the beauty of the diamond; instead it reveals the hand of the jeweler. The diamonds are a wonderful match making this a very special pair, a real antique treasure from Italy.
