the story

We couldn't agree more with the legendary Diana Vreeland when she said "Nothing gives the luxury of pearls. Keep them in mind."

These vintage pearl and diamond drop earrings from circa 1950s look incredible on; simple yet chic and timeless!  Each earring is anchored by a 9 mm cream colored pearl with a hint of a pink overtone, giving them just the right amount of color and warmth.  The pearl drops just below the ear lobe, measuring around 0.64 inches in length.

Above each pearl are four single cut diamonds for a total diamond weight of 0.08 carats in the pair.  The diamonds are channel set vertically in a row in 18K white gold and finished with delicate millegraining, a tiny beaded edge detail, that adds a feminine touch.  Originally found as screw backs, we added the 14K white gold post and clutch to make them easier to wear.

Would make the perfect pair of traditional and wearable earrings for your wedding day and forever after that!

Sorry that this beauty got away but don't lose hope just yet!  Although each antique piece is unique, we are always on the hunt and might come across something similar.
