From Heaven to Earth
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. A stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth.
Beautifully balancing both drama and delicacy is this pair of natural turquoise and diamond drop earrings from Italian Liberty style, Edwardian era.
Visions of neoclassical earrings dance with the grace and delicacy, perfect harmony and exacting symmetry take turquoise and diamonds to new heights.
From a diamonds set geometric motif surmount the neoclassical-like “C” forms culminating in a beautifully hued torquoise drop, they are artfully designed with femininity and movement in mind.
The earrings have golden globe accents and incorporate twenty six old Swiss cut diamonds totaling approx .52 ct set in silver over gold and six old cut diamonds totalling approx .34 Ct set on gold.
Swinging at the bottom, providing a touch of vibrant colour are two drops of natural turquoise, each drop measures approx 6 mm x 16.8 mm.
Artfully crafted in 14 Kt yellow gold and silver, during the first or second decade of the twentieth century, with lever backs for safe wear, marked.
Very good overall condition commensurate to use and age.
