Sapphire and Diamond Chandelier Earrings


The playful design of these mid-20th century platinum chandelier earrings with sapphires and diamonds is irresistibly charming. Dropping from a single blue sapphire cabochon, a platinum-set line baguette-cut diamonds create sparkling radiance with every slight movement of the structured tassel form. Five blue sapphire cabochons embellish the ends of the knotted-central motif; their softly rounded, sky-blue domes create a compelling contrast to the faceted white diamonds.

These delightful earrings possess one-of-a-kind quality, and their design appears to be an inspired amalgam of two distinctive styles. They recall both the pendeloque (a long drop earring that features a ribbon or bow in the center) and the girandole (a three-stone drop chandelier earring); both styles date from the 18th century.
