French Antique Diamond Day and Night Chandelier Earrings

Chandelier style earrings first appeared in Roman times, reappeared during the Renaissance and persisted until the late Victorian period. Thank goodness! These fun and fabulous French earrings might eliminate the need for flipping the light switch. Dangles of shimmering old mine-cut diamonds, set in sleek knife wires, swing and sway from fanciful scrolled tops embellished with black enamel and accented with a single diamond. And if that's not enough, these lovely and versatile jewels transition beautifully from day to night; remove the fancy dangles and--voilà--you have an easy-to-wear pair of simple diamond drops. Pure perfection - circa 1880-1890s. Total diamond weight, 3.00 carats. Hand fabricated in 18K yellow gold, they measure 1/2 by 1 5/16 inches.
