A Pair of Diamond set ‘Day and Night’ Earrings

English, c.1950


the tops comprising of five ribbon like curls mounted with rows of baguette cut diamonds, emerging from a horizontal row of baguette cut diamonds with a diamond set lip, leading into three articulated and graduated drops, the links mounted with baguette cut diamonds, the central drop terminating with a pear shaped diamond, the two side drops capped with brilliant cut diamonds. A tongue fitting to the reverse allows the three rows to be removed, so the diamond set curls can be worn alone.
