Marianne Ostier Gem-Set Rose Gold Earrings

$11,000

Created by Marianne Ostier, these 1940s Retro clip-back earrings are composed of rose gold accented with round brilliant-cut diamond, rubies and sapphires. Designed as stylized hemispherical blossoms with highly-polished and reflective rose-gold petals, the scallop-edged forms are set with vertical lines of round brilliant-cut diamonds, flanked by alternating lines of sapphires and rubies. Light and volumized, these sculpted, rich gold earrings reflect glowing rose light and vivid colors to enhance the face and eyes.
