Demantoid and Diamond EarringsE14141
Garnets 11.11cts, Demantoids 4.87cts, Diamond rim 0.68ct, 18k gold.
A pair of earclips featuring a unique matched pair of cushion demantoid garnets. The vibrant grass-green centerpieces are surrounded with round demantoids of a minty-green color. The total look of sparkling green gems is completed by a rim of diamonds. All demantoids are unheated.
***Some of the finest examples of Fin de Siècle or Edwardian jewelry sparkle with the diamond-like brilliance of the demantoid. The color of life itself and the fire of heaven combine in this gem to make it probably the rarest of the rare in the world of collecto’r stones.***
