    The timeless allure of Art Deco never fails to give me that frisson you get when you look at something particularly special... Art Deco jewelry evoked elegance and sophistication. Departing from the soft curves of the earlier Art Nouveau movement, Art Deco featured linear lines and geometric patterns such as arcs, circles, triangles, squares, and rectangles. These stylistic choices reflected the futuristic feel of this progressive society as seen in these achingly beautiful set of platinum, diamond, onyx, emerald and pearl earrings dating to the early 1920s.

    Because of technological advancements, the 1920s became a time for sophisticated jewelry design. New steel tools cut gemstones more accurately, electric engines mechanised polishing wheels used for faceting, and abrasives allowed for finer trimming. These innovations made it possible for jewellers to create pieces with complex designs such as these extraordinary earrings.

    They start with each earring having a large oval old mine cut diamond of circa 1.30 carats encircled by a crown cluster of a further 9 old mine cut diamonds which together have an estimated total carat weight of 3.60 carats on each earring top. The colour of the diamonds is a rare for pieces of this age being G-H with a clarity of VS1-2. Suspended from this by two small platinum chains are two long marquise shaped onyx plates which are inserted in a diamond encrusted platinum frame and are accented with a single collet set diamond of 0.20 cts at their centres. a further two smaller onyx plates sit below in a widening band of diamonds pave set in platinum. The scalloped shaped bases are then accented with four bright green natural emerald buttons and natural pearls. The whole is set in a platinum frame which is open at the back. The hooks are 18KT gold.

    The stark lines of contrasting gems combine for a dramatic approach yet still managing to highlight the design of the entire earrings with form following function, following the clean lines.

    The earrings measure: 2 7/8 inches in length x 3/4 inc in width (L x W: ca. 73 x 19 mm).

    The earrings weigh 17.63 grams

    Rarely do such jewels appear on the open market and these do not disappoint. These are treasures from a bygone era to be passed from one generation to the next as they will forever remain contemporary
