Vintage 14K 1.59 CTW Old European Cut diamond stud earrings

A pair of super-sparkly Old European Cut diamonds matched by us and set in 14K yellow gold. The diamonds are 1.59 CTW (.79 and .80 carat each) and near mirror-matches of each other, right down to millimeter spread and culet size! These earrings glow with the warm-bodied brilliance that we LOVE to see in old cut diamonds. The crown facets radiate like sunbursts on these diamonds, each one slightly different from the next. It is easy to imagine a diamond cutter bent over his tools 100 years ago, pulling the facets out of the diamond one by one, completely by hand. This is a superb and easy-to-love pair. Screw backs.

Note: This pair comes with appraisal paperwork for insurance/replacement, ready for your files. The earrings appraised for $8700 (11/7/23)
