From early-20th-century France, a pair of exquisite and sexy Art Deco drop earrings finely hand fabricated in platinum, circa 1910-12 (according to the hallmark). Swinging tear drops, aglitter with slender stripes of tiny rose-cut diamonds alternating with royal blue calibre sapphires (synthetic*), frame a sparkling circle of bright-white diamonds which, from a polite distance, effectively mimic two-carat diamonds. 1 1/2-inch long and lovely (they drop a bit further from the ear wires). *Back in the day, the early-20th-century, due to their color consistency and flawless clarity, synthetic sapphires were considered a modern improvement over their natural counterparts, the subtle differences only detectable with a microscope. The ear wires have been updated later.
