Take a deep breath, because you're going to need it. These antique earrings, likely made in the 1800s, are exquisite.

Topped in sterling silver, and backed in 18K yellow gold, the top of these earrings is a gorgeous filigreed floral spiral, peppered with rose cut and single cut diamonds. Each earring has a natural pear shaped opal (12.5 x 8.3) suspended from a diamond studded claw-like crown.

When these earrings first came into our shop, we called our independent GIA graduate gemologist and asked him to examine the opals. He described them as: natural and lighter than black opals, but darker than white opals ("gray opals"). On the brightness scale, they are at level 4 to level 4.5, indicating an intense play of color (the scale peaks at 5). They appear as bright in darkness as they do in the light.

MEASUREMENTS: 1.15"L x 0.4"W
