Antique Cultured Pearl & Old Mine Cut Diamond Earrings, Victorian Converted 15ct 15k Rose Gold Dangles.Add to Wishlist
Cultured pearl & old mine cut diamond earrings. A row of three old mine cut diamonds are secured in claws with a lovely cluster of three cultured pearls at their base. The diamonds are lovely, striking old cuts. Each stone, which was cut by hand, has a large open culet and somewhat off-round outline as you'd expect with original antique diamonds, while still producing such wonderful fire! The cultured pearls are a soft, glowing white. This piece is two-tone with the gemstones set in white claws and the pearls and ear wires rosy in colour. Circa late Victorian with modern conversion.
This piece was originally a brooch which has been converted, we've kept the original markings on the brooch when we used the pin competent to make the Victorian style ear hooks.
Pearls: cultured, 6 total. 4 are approx 3.2 mm and the bottom 2 are approx 3.5 mm.

While it's included, it doesn't affect the passage of light and with a stone of this size it wouldn't generally be visible to the naked eye, especially while worn in the ear!
