119 Admirers

Sleeper or dormeuse earrings started out as single old mine, cushion cut or rose cut diamonds or coloured gemstones in a crown-style setting and were often worn to bed to keep the earlobe hole from closing. These earrings were made in France circa 1880 and are part gold and silver. They have been set with old mine cut diamonds with a rose diamond above and are wearable on an everyday basis and night time too if you fancy!
