If you’re at all in the habit of looking at fabulous jewelry online, you’re familiar with Van Cleef & Arpels. If you’re not, I recommend you do yourself a favor and check them out, because it’s worth your while.
These earrings aren’t particularly innovative, but they are stunning. High-caliber gemstones in a bold, gorgeous setting. Perfect for your finer red carpets and galas.
These were made in France, in the 1970’s. They’re set with four pear-shaped sapphires weighing approximately 18.15 total carats, accented by circular-cut and pear-shaped diamonds weighing approximately 17.23 total carats, mounted in 18k yellow gold, with clips and post backs. The drops are detachable so that the upper part of the earrings can be worn separately. They are signed Van Cleef & Arpels.
I think these would be amazing on a brunette. I volunteer.
