Vintage 1950s mid-century retro .55 CTW droplet earrings

Mid-century 18K gold earrings with twinkling brilliant cut diamonds set in rosette shaped drops. The diamonds are .55 CTW, or just over 1/4 carat each, and neatly tucked into rotated, white gold frames. This subtle two-tone design not only highlights the brilliance of the diamonds with an "illusion" setting but also contrasts beautifully with the richness of the yellow gold. The drops remind me a bit of the Haley's Comet jewelry of the Victorian era, with a golden "tail" leading to the sparkling diamond! Lever back and notched closure. Round post tops. 

Note: These earrings come with a jewelry appraisal for insurance/replacement completed by a GIA Graduate Gemologist. The appraisal is set at $2650.
