Cartier Sapphire and Diamond Drop Earrings


The flowing design of these Cartier sapphire and diamond earrings frames the face with a radiant energy. A tessellation of blue sapphires bounded by dazzling colorless diamonds set in platinum creates a sense of expanding fluidity and movement. The articulated drop is detachable for a sleek stud that contours the lobe, or worn as a drop for romantic drama.
