Victorian 15kt Black Enamel + Diamond Earrings 2.25ctw

$ 31,995
  • Description
    A magnificent pair of earrings from the Victorian (ca1880s) era! Crafted in vibrant 15kt yellow gold, these earrings begin with a simple earring wire atop a stippled oval surmount. The surmount centers a delicate Single Cut diamond in a belcher setting. The bottom of each buttercup petal is lined with black enamel to match the rich enamel oval that contrasts beautifully against the golden setting. A dainty twisted rope motif encircles the piece. An ornate, diamond-encrusted ribbon detail hangs from a hinge below, its eleven Single Cut diamonds glittering in open-backed settings. The breathtaking oval setting is even more ornate than the surmount; An incredible Pear Cut diamond rests at the center of a feminine belcher setting. The Pear Cut diamonds have G/H color and VS2-SI1 clarity, and eight five-pointed stars decorate the black enamel oval, each one set with a glinting Rose Cut diamond. The total approximate diamond weigh is 2.25ctw between the pair, and the design is completed by a delicate twisted rope border and a dangling sphere. The earrings frame the face beautifully and swing with gentle motion when worn. These spectacular, dramatic earrings are a gorgeous example of fine Victorian jewelry and would be a special addition to a collection.

    Measurements: The earrings hang 2 3/8" in length including the earring wire. They are slightly more than 11/16" wide and an overall 11/32" deep.

    Condition: The earrings are in excellent condition. Beisdes normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting. The diamonds are all intact and securely set. The enamel is in incredible antique condition, showing minimal signs of wear. The hinges, bail, and earring wires are all secure and in good working condition.
