ANTIQUE EDWARDIAN ROCK CRYSTAL DIAMOND DROP EARRINGS 18CT GOLD CIRCA 1905
A fabulous pair of Antique Edwardian drop earrings from the early 20th Century each fitted with a wonderful transparent Rock Crystal dropper with a twinkling brilliant cut Diamond bezel set in the gallery above (approx. 0.05ct each).
The colourless Rock Crystal was once believed by ancients to be a form of solidified ice that could never be thawed and it’s easy to see why as these clear stones both resemble long drops of water or carved icicles which give them a wonderful natural elegance.
The wires and settings are fashioned in 18ct Yellow Gold with wonderful leaf-like claws holding the crystals in place. They are very unique and have been kept in excellent condition.
