These extraordinarily fabulous and exuberant earrings are a Michael Youssoufian creation. 52 pear-shaped and round multi-colored sapphires and garnets (23.24 carats) and diamonds (9.67 carats) in white gold. I haven’t seen much of Youssoufian’s work but these are a pressing reason to go looking for more.
These are spectacular. And not subtle…wallflowers need not apply.
These earrings are going to be part of Sotheby’s Important Jewels Sale in New York on 20 September 2012 – click here for the listing. All information and photos of this piece are thanks to Sotheby’s.
