Art Deco Diamond Drop Earrings c.1930
An elegant pair of Art Deco diamond earrings.
These stylish earrings have 4 old cut diamonds of graduated size connected by a fine 'knife edge' bar.
Each of the diamonds is beautifully mounted in a rub-over setting fronted in platinum with a milgrain edge. The setting is open to the reverse and each diamond section is individually articulated so that the earrings have beautiful movement when worn.
The 'knife-edge' setting was popular through the Edwardian and Art Deco eras and gives the impression that the diamonds are floating in space as the fronts of the setting are overlaid with platinum.
The earrings are suspended from a long hook again typical of the era. They could be converted if required to post and butterfly fittings with the post coming from the back of the top diamond.
