An unusual pair of platinum and 18ct yellow gold emerald (0.90ct) and diamond (2.20ct) pendant earrings from the Edwardian period. Two blue green square cut emeralds have been secured by prominent yellow gold claws. These have been set on top of bold platinum square surrounds, which have been set with old cut diamonds. Moving freely with the wearer, these motifs have been suspended from a slim diamond set trumpet shaped section that is connected to an old cut diamond stud. Delicate millegrain edging further defines these elegant shapes and adds interest to the composition. The Edwardian period only lasted for nine years (1901-1910), but it was an incredibly important era for jewellery design. Hugely intricate pieces, showcasing the very best diamonds and gemstones, were worn with elaborate fashions from the most famous French couture houses. Driven by the explosion of court life, steered by the fashion conscious King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra, this was a truly special time. These earrings are particularly eye-catching, as the central emeralds and square surrounds have been set at an angle. The bold yellow gold claws also grip each emerald in a striking manner, with interspaced, platinum, wishbone shaped sections providing a stunning contrast.
The Edwardian period was one of grace and elegance, which saw the most rare and expensive metals and stones being preferred in jewellery, particularly earrings.
