Besides exuding drop-dead glamor, these vintage beauties are true investment jewels featuring two Colombian emeralds, long prized as the world's finest, framed by 26 brilliant-cut diamonds worthy of their role.

A leading gemologist’s appraisal graded the pear-shaped emeralds SI-1 in clarity and very well-matched in both cut and color (AC Colorscan number 205): the lush, saturated green of a tropical rainforest. The diamonds are also of the type gaining value, graded G/H/I in color and VVS in clarity and characterized by excellent proportion, symmetry and polish. (The few of greater quality are so costly that the market is too limited for them to appreciate as much.)

Including the gracefully domed 14k white gold settings, articulated to dance as you move, these gorgeous earrings tip the scales at 2.3 pennyweights, so they’re quite substantial. Emeralds account for about a carat and diamonds for another half-carat. Length is 3/4 of an inch and they measure 3/8 of an inch at their widest. Naturally, threaded security posts and screw-on clutches are present.

From a lovely estate collection of fine jewelry consigned to us, they’ve been in the same family since mid-century, so are nearing antique status by American 75-year standards.

There'll be no charge to deliver these, by secure and rapid means, to any country where we ship. It would be our pleasure to supply beautiful gift-wrapping, too. Please e-mail to confirm availability, request more photos, order or discuss a layaway, if that would be convenient for you. Thanks for looking!
