Circa 1960 Glossy Black Onyx and Diamond Statement Earrings
These earrings are the utter definition of classic. Glossy black onyx framed perfectly in 14k gold and accented with brilliant diamonds. The shape is dramatic yet timeless and the size is honestly just right: large enough to make a statement yet not so big as to be overwhelming. They give off such an air of elegance that they can easily be dressed way up for a "black tie" caliber event. However, they are so effortless and chic that they can just as easily be worn to the office or any kind of dinner or gathering.
They measure 1-7/8" from the very top to the very bottom and are fitted with a simple post for pierced ears. The two dangling oval onyx pieces are smartly overlapping and have been soldered into position at the back. The three diamonds that embellish each earring are full modern brilliant cuts and are set into a slender gold triangle. This adds a wonderful geometry to the whole design and really takes them to the next level of chicness! These are a perfect, classic, timeless, go-to earring that will fit the bill for many years to come!
