Gorgeous vintage earrings with citrines & diamonds in white gold, around 1990

The citrine is the classic stone of summer, it is named after the French word for lemon, "citron". Its coloration ranges from pastel lemon yellow to golden yellow and orange to a strong "Madeira" tone, named after the wine of the same name. Two faceted citrines, each in a teardrop-shaped briolet cut, together with a multitude of diamonds form the setting of these turn-of-the-millennium earrings. Beneath a plug with a single old-cut diamond is a two-piece long bar, at the bottom of which the citrine catches the eye. Due to their length and mobility, the pendants offer a particularly elegant eye-catcher and frame the face in an advantageous way. The combination of the warm glow of the beautiful citrine and the cool sparkle of the diamonds make ear jewellery an enchanting eye-catcher. We discovered the pair in Düsseldorf and could not resist the charisma of the stones.
