In early Spring, before the leaves begin to deepen into summer green, before the flowers open and release their heady fragrance, the hills around my home seem to glow with a halo of pure, Spring green. It tickles the eyeballs and delights the senses, a landscape reborn. When I saw these earrings, sitting in windowed office watching the snow fall on frosty London, it reminded me of the green hills of home. The pure verdant green hue of that most rare and precious gem, the emerald. Here the emerald is the star of the show, but oh what a wonderful cast it has to support it, in the form of over 2 carats of spectacular old cut diamonds!
These vintage diamond and emerald drop earrings were handcrafted in the 1930s, most likely in England which is where we found them. They boast 26 Old European cut diamonds and two perfect emeralds. Each piece features a cluster motif with a rich, green, emerald-cut emerald at the center. Each emerald measures 6 x 5 x 2.5 mm and weighing approximately .52 carats. Each lively green stone is surrounded by 12 diamonds set in platinum over 18 karat gold, one more sparkling diamond sits at the top of the cluster, adding even more glam and glitz to an already glittering design; the total diamond weight is approximately 2 carats. Together, this pair of earrings weighs 4.8 grams.
