Scrolling Gold and Diamond Ribbon Earrings


Dating from the 1940s, these Retro gold clipback earrings are accented with glittering diamonds. Each earring's stepped, tightly scrolling form is centrally pavé-set with a field of round-cut diamonds. Both compact and voluminous, these light-hearted and appealing clipback earrings express the vibrant spirit of the post-War 1940s, while their warm glow and diamonds draw light and sparkle to the face.
