Fabulous Pearl & Diamond 14k Gold Earrings in Yin Yang Design
Regular price $2,124.00
Presented is a fabulous pair of pearl and diamond 14K gold earrings in the form of a yin yang. On each earring two large gray and black pearls are set in an S shaped gold mounting. The S-shaped gold mounting is set with diamonds and is flanked with four prong-set diamonds on its sides. The pearls are large, cultured pearls. The gray pearls are larger and measure between 8.1-8.3 millimeters in diameter. The black pearls have a very fine iridescent quality to them and measure between 7.18-7.38 millimeters in diameter. Each earring has 10 diamonds set in the S shape between the pearls, with four graduated diamonds prong set around the S. The stones in the S are single cut, mine cut and full cut stones. They have an average of SI clarity, with some I and some VS. The two largest side diamonds are mine cut stones with G-H color and SI clarity. They measure 4.14 - 4.24 millimeters in diameter and have a 2.6 - 2.68 millimeter depth. They are about 35-40 points each. The second largest stones are at least 15 points each, probably larger. The third largest are about 6 points each. The total diamond weight is between 1.50-1.60 carats. These earrings are likely American. We are not sure when they were made. The earrings are marked on the screwbacks with 14K. We have tested the setting and screwbacks with nitric acid and guarantee them to be 14K gold. The condition is excellent. The pearls and stones are securely set. The stones are in great shape. Two of the smaller stones have a small chip, but these are minor and visible only on very close inspection. These are only on the smaller stones, as well, and the pearls and larger diamonds will draw the attention more. There are no other chips, no cracks, no breaks, no splits and no repairs. The earrings measure approximately 3/4 inch long and 9/16 inch wide.
The earrings weigh 9.3 grams.
