Cabochon Ruby and Diamond Clip Earrings Mounted by Cartier
Created circa the 1950s-1960s, these cabochon ruby and diamond earrings are designed and mounted by Cartier in 18K gold and platinum. Each high relief form is designed as an elongated mass of variously-sized cabochon rubies interspersed with round-cut diamonds, trailing drops with diamond tendrils and a cabochon ruby cluster. Cartier created these earings from gems supplied by the original client. Inspired by the colors and forms of Indian jewelry and decorative arts, these earrings suggest nature’s opulence in blooming red blossoms with diamond leaves and dewdrops.
