You’re going to love or hate these pastel gemstone earrings.
You see what I mean? They’re not your average ear wear.
These earrings are each anchored by a larger oval-cut gemstone within a matching surround: kunzite on some side and lemon quartz on the other. Beneath each gemstone surmount is a circular-cut diamond spacer and a pavé-set diamond cap, from which dangles a magnificent mobile of gemstones. The bunches of stones (they don’t seem streamlined enough to be “tassels.” “Pom-poms,” perhaps?) are made up of a boquet of faceted kunzite, lemon quartz and varicolored sapphire stones.
Moment of truth: what do you think of these? I love unusual jewelry and I think the shape of these is interesting, but I can’t decide if I find the colors to be pretty or slightly insipid. I know I’d like these in richer jewel tones. I might like them as they are. What do you think? Yay or nay?
These unusual pastel gemstone earrings were listed in a December 2013 auction at Philips. All images and info are thanks to Phillips.
