A pair of beautifully crafted, stunningly pretty, Italian sapphire and diamond flower earrings. Each diamond is very white (we estimate D-G in colour) with no obvious inclusions even under x10 magnification.
Each earring features 9 x .06ct (.54ct) and 9 x .04 (.36ct), making a total carat weight of 1.8ct for both. The sapphires, of perfect, medium saturation, are a lovely deep royal blue colour. They are resoundingly royal! Of course Princess Diana and Kate Middleton's engagement ring springs to mind..
This flower design is very similar to pieces we have seen by both Tiffany & Co. and Van Cleef & Arpels. The quality of the stones and workmanship is of an equivalent standard to these highly renowned jewellers.
The photographs are of the actual ring itself, and show every stamp, hallmark and detail at x20 magnification.
The price however, is not the same! If these earrings were by Van Cleef & Arpels they would probably cost in the region of £6,000 -£8,000.
Presented in newly polished condition, with earring posts for pierced ears. They measure approximately 15.5mm in diameter and weigh 8.6 grams.
Stamped Pt 950.
A wonderful find!
