March 6, 2013
Cambridge, United KingdomLive Auction
Description: A pair of diamond and sapphire eardrops, each with a graduated line of three old round brilliant cut diamonds,crimp collet set, and suspending a pear cut royal blue claw set sapphire, in white and yellow precious metal, Continental hook and clip fittings, length 2.2cm, estimated total weight of diamonds approximately 1.00ct
All stones are secure in their settings, and the hook & hinge fittings are in good working order. The diamonds are appealing old cuts with no obvious inclusions, estimated J colour. The sapphires are a good rich blue; observation with a loupe shows one has some light surface abrasion; the other has more intense colour at one end & an area of lily-pad veils. The earrings are fine period pieces, very pretty, with wear commensurate with age.
