Diamond Pendant Earrings
Dating from the early 1900s, these flexible Edwardian platinum drop earrings are set with five and a half carats of diamonds. Each earring suspends a larger old European-cut diamond weighing two carats in a pear-shaped drop from a pair of diamond leaf motifs and an articulated cascade of bezel-set old European-cut diamonds. Delicately enhanced with millegrain accents, these elegant pendant earrings enhance the face with movement, white light and sparkle.
