An exceptional pair of long pendant earrings. Exceptional because of the workmanship and execution of their production, which is of the finest quality. The earrings consist of a surmount with a pear shape. What looks like one, pear-shaped diamond is actually two round diamonds, so well fitted together that you cannot see the join with the naked eye. In fact, one is slightly below the other in depth.Tiny platinum links join the next 3 floral-formed sections of the earrings. Each one is larger than the next and more elaborate. They all have a flower and foliage theme with round central diamonds. The bottom, largest, section is rounded off with a double hoop of diamonds. Larger diamonds are Old European cuts and clearly date to the 19th century. They are beautiful quality stones. When we look at the backs of these earrings, we see how beautiful the workmanship is and how clean the finish. This is another indication of the best quality workmanship, where they took care of something noone would actually see. 
Earrings have screw-posts. They are fine enough to fit comfortably into the modern ear. This form of post places the earrings squarely in the Retro/Deco period. 
Marks: no marks were found. Metal was acid tested to ensure purity. <P><P>
Condition: Good with negligible wear commensurate with age. Please see enlarged photos for details. Do not hesitate to ask questions, which we will do our best to answer.
