foil-backed quartz, diamond, platinum, and 14k gold dangle earrings


The Story

A beautiful pair of antique earrings with movement and color. Though these earrings came to us as they are today, we believe they were made from married parts. A gorgeous and eye catching foil-backed quartz is seen at the bottom. Made from domed quartz and closed in the back with a sheet of purple foil, they look like a piece of candy. Set at top of the quartz are 3 rose cut diamonds. Moving up the earring are platinum-topped 14k yellow gold bars set with 8 rose cut diamonds. They finish with a long and elegant hook. 

The earrings, with their gorgeous design take on the wearers movement. Measuring 1.5" tall, they have a presence. A colorful piece of antique jewelry to treasure for years to come.
