Cascading Diamond Pendant Earrings


These dynamic platinum clip earrings from the 1950s are set with over seven carats of diamonds. Intriguing in form, and mounted in minimal metal to preserve lightness, the sparkling motifs are designed as brilliant-cut diamond cascading swirls pierced by lines of baguettes that suspend a flexible fringe of rounds. Evoking fluidity and movement like a diamond waterfall, these lively and fluid pendant earrings draw radiance and fascination to the face and eyes.
