Looking for some diamond stud earrings with more moxie than the typical pair? These dazzlers have the look of mini-dangles, each being composed of TWO gems of graduated size. They're one-of-a-kind -- custom-crafted around 1980, when the stones were set in sleek white gold mounts with threaded security posts and clutches. The gems came from two pair acquired around 1960, which had yellow gold "buttercup" mounts that fell out of favor ages ago.

At the bottom are the larger stones, seeming like "drops". They're 1/4 carat diamonds (0.25 and 0.26, estimated by measurement) rated G/H/I in color and I-1 in clarity. The smaller ones are 6 points each, rated G/H/I in color and VS and SI-1 in clarity. Total weight is 0.51 for the two larger diamonds and 0.12 for the two smaller, thus a substantial 0.63 carats total. (The details come from an old appraisal we saw when these beauties were consigned to us as part of a lovely estate collection of fine jewelry.)

As tasteful for the office as a night on the town, they'll look stunning on their own -- and they'll also add far more interest to your earring jackets than single-stone studs could ever do. Condition is mint, so great that I'll bet they haven't been worn more than a few times.

Here's one more thing to think about: An important benefit of choosing older diamonds is that we can be sure they aren't "blood diamonds". Far too many of the newer ones are funding insurgencies and terrorism.
