Sapphire and Diamond Cluster Earrings, Antique French

When packing for a trip to the Grecian Island of Mykonos, it’s only necessary to put a few things in your bag. Flat leather sandals are all you’ll need to meander the white steps and narrow lanes. Add in a bathing suit and a sarong for day, a flowing sundress for night, a big hat and movie start sunglasses and these earrings; earrings that reflect the colors of the blue church domes that dot the islands hillsides. Earrings that mirror the fabulous blue of the sea. 

These wonderful hand crafted earrings were made in France around 1900. They are done in 18 karat gold with the diamonds set in platinum and the bright blue sapphires set in gold. The sapphires in these are a fantastic blue, they measure 5x5x3.5 mm and weigh approximately .65 carats each, or 1.3 carats total. Surrounding each sapphire is a halo of 8 old European cut diamonds, each of which weighs .04 carats, and .03 carat diamonds at the top. The total diamond weighs is about .75 carats. Each earring measures 17mm top to bottom and 6mm across. They have lever backs that click into place for extra security and they are marked on the levers with the French eagle’s head hallmark. The earrings weigh 4.6 grams. 

I bought these lovelies in Paris, they came in this antique leather box, who knows how long they’ve been together.
