Twinkly Old Mine Cut Diamond Studs, Circa 1900
These are such pretty little earrings! They date from the turn of the last century, circa 1900, and feature two excellent old mine cut diamonds. The total diamond weight is approximately .25ct and the stones are extremely brilliant. Each diamond is set securely with six delicate and elongated prongs which hold the stone at a distance from the concave, ruffle-edged flower setting. The nature of this design is so smart and airy allowing a tremendous amount of light in beneath the diamonds to provide optimal brilliance. The posts are threaded with clutches that screw into place giving you comfort in knowing they are secure. The dimension across the face of each flower is approximately 8mm. The prongs sweep gently inward as they extend to hold the diamonds approximately 5mm above the edge of their flower setting.
