Antique Victorian Diamond Button Earrings in 18k Gold, 2.4 ctw

Some things are just so fun to photograph, you barely kiss them with the light and they start to send rainbows of color all over the room. These earrings were like that, set with diamonds so bright and sparkly that they seemed to dance under my lens. The gold seems to have an extra rich glow in their presence. Indeed, a joy to photograph. You know what else would make a great portrait? You. In these. 

Hand crafted around 1880 in 18 karat gold, these Victorian beauties didn’t start out life as earrings. Their constructions leads me to believe that they were probably buttons, and there were probably a lot of them, can’t you just imagine how opulent and amazing that dress must have been? Well, they do their buttony-selves justice in their current life as wonderful post-set earrings. The diamonds in these earrings are quite high quality and each ear holds seven of them, each weighing approximately .17 carats each for a total diamond weight of about 2.4 carats (1.2 ctw per ear). The diamonds are all old European round cuts and the unmarked mountings test as 18 karat gold. The backs test as 9 karat gold. The earrings measure 14.2 mm across the long way and 13.4 mm across the short way and are 3.5 mm thick. 

Bright and sparkly and certainly better than your run-of-the-mill studs, these fantastic earrings would transition from day to night as easily as they went from coat to ear!
