Old mine cut diamonds sparkle at the center of these rich gold dormeuse earrings from the 1870s. The alluring stones are each embraced by a gold loop adorned with tiny circles of rope– perhaps these are love loops, with bands of rope suggesting eternal bonds! Small spheres add the perfect touch, dangling from the bottom, creating movement that accentuates the stunning glitter of the diamonds.
These earrings are set in 18k yellow gold with 1 carat in total weight of old mine cut diamonds. One diamond is graded G-H near colorless grade and VS clarity grade while the other is graded I-J color grade and SI2 clarity grade. Each earring measures about 7/8 inch long and 5/8 inch wide.
