This pair of diamond drop earrings are early twentieth century and contains five marquise-cut and four round-cut diamonds in each earring, set in 18 carat white gold.
"These earrings are ideal for day-wear for a woman of my age or for a younger woman to wear day or night. Discreet rather than elaborate, their drop is short enough that they are suitable for day as well as evening wear," Lady Colin Campbell says. "I usually wear them with something casual, often in the day when one would look ridiculous or ostentatious in more ostentatious diamond earrings. They also come into their own when I lend them to younger friends of mine, who then wear them out formally. They are always pleased to borrow them, and I must say, they look far better on a younger woman in evening wear than they do on me, so I am always delighted when I see them across a room at a dance or important reception being put to better use than I could ever achieve on my own."
A pair of earrings with similar sized and quality stones set in 18 carat gold
starts at £22,500.
