Richly hued marquise cut green garnets (called tsavorite garnets) are strikingly displayed against the 18 kt yellow gold in these stunning earrings. The radiant color of the garnets is further enriched by multitudes of sparkling diamonds and lovely scrollwork. 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 earrings, each uniquely beautiful in its own way."
