Diamond Ruby and Emerald Pendant Earrings

These platinum ruby, emerald and diamond pendant earrings were created circa 1915-1925, in the Late Edwardian to early Art Deco period. Each is designed with a diamond and ruby top suspending a cascade of geometric elements and flexible fringe set with round, pear and calibré-cut rubies, emeralds, and diamonds, with millegrain accents and platinum mount. With their vibrant color with the brilliance and scintillation of diamonds, these flexible pendant earrings combine enchanting length, geometric form and movement in an early 20th century design spirit.

In the early twentieth century, earring form moved from diminutive to opulently lengthy and imbued with motion. Their evolution is said to have followed the appearance bobbed hair in high fashion. Long earrings dramatically flattered bobbed hair styles and a svelte silhouette. As hair styles changed, long earrings often fell victim to these shifts, and were shortened. It is rare to find long earrings surviving from this period.
