Corals in dance

Unusual earrings with diamonds & corals, Italy circa 1950

Already the fashion of the 18th century loved the splendor of sparkling diamonds. Jewellery with these fiery stones is still the ideal and dream of many people. However, due to their rarity and the high costs and problems of cutting and polishing the stones, owning a piece of diamond jewellery remained out of reach for the majority of the population. Only crowned heads and a few wealthy nobles could adorn themselves with jewelry made entirely of diamonds. The large earrings presented here take forms from the 18th century, but, as the modern full cuts of the diamonds reveal, were probably created in the period after the Second World War: A total of 12 brilliant-cut diamonds are set in patinated silver. Large ornamental arches and powerful leaf shapes combine to create a light yet impressive design. Attached to each are three drops of salmon-colored Italian coral, so-called Corallo Sciacca, which begin to dance with the wearer's every movement. The pieces are made of patinated silver to let the light of the diamonds shine in them effectively. The earwires, on the other hand, are forged from high karat gold so that they are well tolerated. A rare opportunity for all lovers of coral and expressive earrings.
