4ct Old European Cut Diamond Earrings Antique Peranakan

SG$7,800.00

19th century 20k antique gold stud earrings set with a cluster of Old European Cut diamonds, weighing at least 3.6ctw in total.

These are over a century old and in excellent condition. The gold work is the most solid we’ve come across, since the earrings are also meant to accent as buttons, on blousons or cuffs, or anywhere dandy.

Each stud is a 3-part solid gold artefact, the three parts detachable into a diamond crown, a screw post, and the screw backing.

Created like a ‘nut and bolt’, you will unscrew the diamond crown only when you wish to wear the studs as buttons. If you wear the studs as earrings they are pretty much like other pairs of screw back earrings, just the stud and backing.

The OEC diamonds range in size from 3.5mm to 5mm, with each stud having 8 diamonds. They will cover the earlobes mostly.

Please note that that the screw post is thicker than most antique screw back studs, because these are constructed to be extremely solid. If you are only used to wearing small piercing type of earrings, this pair may get some getting used to.

Up to now (a decade in business), we’ve only come across one pair like this. Books have recorded the studs being used as luxury accessories in the Straits Chinese traditional garb, beyond just ear studs, on buttonless blousons or Western style shirts women also wore. But it is fascinating to see their constructive form with modern eyes, because more so now than ever, their artifactual beauty is what modern imagination keeps craving for.

Heirloom, with so much storytelling into the lives of a certain class of society.

Priced affordably, for this should go back into the world.
