Old Mine-cut Diamond Pendant Earrings

$ 60,000
  • Description
    Cretated circa 1870, these flexibly-set old mine-cut diamond pendant earrings are mounted in silver-topped 18K gold. Set with 96 old mine-cut diamonds, with an approximate total weight of 13.00 carats, each circular top is joined by stylized foliate and floral elements suspending a trio of larger diamonds within a conforming diamond frame, in dark-patinated silver-topped gold mounts. Supremely elegant, these superb antique earrings activate the unique fiery and brilliant light of old mine-cut diamonds, and they enliven the face with sparkle and gentle movement.

    Item #: ER-20661
    Circa: 1870
    Dimensions: 2.25" length x 1" width
    Materials: 96 old mine-cut diamonds (with approximate total weight 13.00 carats); 18K Gold and Oxidized Silver

    Such beautifully-designed antique pendant earrings as these rarely survive in their original form. In their mountings of silver-topped gold, the jeweler achieved highly refined lightness and movement. Lost over time, or altered to satisfy short-lived hairstyles and fashions, antique earrings displaying unity of design, high quality stones, and refined workmanship are a great rarity.
