Description & Technical information

Each hung with an old pear shaped diamond below square-cushion cut diamond tops and smaller similar diamond in between.

Note:
Although by appearance these earrings look to date circa 1880 or earlier, they are in fact made in platinum. Platinum became a popular material for jewellers from the late 19th century. They are likely to have been a transitional design and make.
