The radiant color of the sapphires is further enhanced by multitudes of sparkling diamonds, lovely scrollwork and milgrain design. This beautiful vintage-inspired design is sure to be enjoyed for many generations to come!
GORDON'S DESIGN NOTES: "Inspired by the upside-down shape of the center leaf of a fleur-de-lis, I decided to look for a pair of marquise-cut gemstones when attending the AGTA Gem Show in Tucson, Az. a few years ago. I ended up finding five matched pairs of gemstones in different colors, sizes and shapes. I liked them all so much, I decided to buy them all. Between the gemstone and metal color differences, I ended up with five pairs of one-of-a-kind earrings, each uniquely beautiful in its own way."
