A pair of very pretty and feminine 18ct white gold pendant drop earrings set with old cut diamonds. These earrings use Old Cut diamonds within the drop section of the earring whilst using more contemporary fittings. These are connected to small bezel set brilliant studs that feature secure posts with butterfly backs. The post section is set with a brilliant cut diamond, also hallmarked for 18 karat gold in London in 2003.


With an estimated total carat weight of 0.60 carat, there are a mixture of diamond cuts.  These drop earrings are a good ‘marriage of old and new utilising old cut stones with the security of newer fittings. Being articulated, they catch the light very nicely, 


The popularity of old cut diamonds has soared over the past decade, with the slightly irregular shapes of these stones offering a more subtle and romantic sparkle than modern equivalents.
