14K Gold and Diamond Wing Shaped Earrings


These 14k gold and diamond earrings are shaped like wings, with a graduated line of diamonds descending down each wing. The diamonds are bead set in 14k white gold, emphasizing the sparkle of the diamonds. The shape of the wings are elongated and sinuous—they mirror each other and can be worn facing either direction for two different symmetrical looks. The posts are located about 1/2” below the tops of the earrings, so that the earrings sit up high on the ear. 

The image of wings evokes powerful symbolism. They can represent angels and protection, as well as flight, movement, and ascendence. We love the subtle representation of wings in these earrings—the narrow, elegant shape of the earring makes them sleek and stylish; their wing shape is only noticeable at second glance. 

The earrings contain 20 diamonds total (10 in each earring). They have a combined weight of .5 carats. The diamonds are G-H in color and VS2-SL1 in clarity. They are round brilliant. The earrings are unmarked but acid test as 14k gold. The earrings backs are marked 14k. 

The earrings measure 1.75” x 3/8” each. Combined, they weigh 7.7 grams. The back posts are threaded, making them very secure. For pierced ears. 

Circa 1960's.
