SOLD Vintage 18kt Gold Moonstone & Sapphire Cluster Earrings
A beautiful pair of earrings from the middle of the 20th Century, c1950s. The earrings are made from solid 18kt gold and have stunning cabochon moonstones at the centre. The moonstones have wonderful adularescence with a soft blue undertone. This is complimented perfectly with the surrounding halo of blue sapphires. The sapphires are a lovely rich colour and set in individual gold settings that have a point towards the edge. This gives the earrings the look of a flower; to my mind, a sunflower. The earrings are very solid and beautiful quality. They have threaded posts and a screw back making them very secure in the ear. Due to their weight, they do have a tendency to fall forward a little, though the screw backs do go up the thread far enough to keep the earrings in place in the ear.
