Antique French Diamond Flower Earrings
ABOUT THESE EARRINGS
"He loves me, he loves me not." This little game of French origin--picking petals from flowers to determine the heart of your love interest--is a fanciful way to pass the time. Games aside, you will love you when you wear these delightful earbobs that shimmer and shine with icy-white rose-cut diamonds--a la francaise, of course. Circa 1838-1847 (an extremely early use of platinum). The lever-back closure was added later. Total diamond weight, 1.50 carats. Hand fabricated in platinum over 18K gold.
