A classic pair of Art Deco drop earrings. They are 15ct gold with a platinum front which was a common design in the 1920s.The diamonds are particularly bright white stones and are set in millegrain settings. which are characterized by a series of continuous fine beads (the term literally translates as “a thousand grains” in French) on the surface. These are not only decorative, but can also help secure a gemstone in place created by rolling a tiny wheel at the edge of a special tool over the metal. They swing from a loop underneath the top diamond, so are light and pretty on the ear.
