Old Mine Cut, UV SI1, Diamond Dormeuse Earrings, 12.04 CT
This absolutely stunning pair of antique earrings are in the dormeuses style, which were originally designed to prevent the earlobe holes from closing while a woman slept. These earrings feature beautiful cushion-shaped Old Mine cut diamonds, pleasantly bright with a slightly warm complexion, set in handmade platinum and rose gold baskets. Smaller Old European cut diamonds set in platinum bezels accent from above, while rose gold leverbacks secure the earrings to the ear. There’s just one modern twist, however: These are to be worn while the wearer is awake for all to admire.
