Sure and "I would like you to do us a favor though," show us the green!? Haha.
See my other reply.
These are my late mom’s vintage cabochon emerald earrings. Not sure of the carat weight, they’re about 12mm x 10mm each. My late mom and dad had a much more glamorous social life than a little o me back in the 60s and 70s lol. I have only worn them once may be 15 years ago. Thinking of turning them into 2 pendants for my twin girls or something like that but they’re just so pretty, I haven’t pulled a trigger. The green is unreal and slightly deeper glowy green IRL, the pic just doesn’t do them justice.
I have another pair of small earrings and a couple little pendants that are much more wearable. Need to look for them.
Hi @RosieR, it was a total impulse buy from an IG vendor. The seller is a diamond wholesaler and happened to have a loose emerald stone available. I’ve been following JR Colombian Emeralds on IG, they seem to have a huge inventory. Haven’t purchased anything from them though. Good luck and please come back and show us what you get.
Please keep the cab earrings, do NOT destroy them! I don't wear earrings but those negative spaces are enchanting. Wear them as pins or something.
Can we see more of them?
I may be able to turn them into 2 pendants for each of my girls. It’s a shame that there’s no occasion for me to wear them as earrings—a bit too much for Costco methinks. Lol. The design reminds me of a treble clef in music notes.
Here are a few more pics. It’s raining today so just natural light through the windows.
I love them! The cabs could make amazing rings too.
I know, right? The current design is so elegant, I’d hate to change it completely. I’ll wait until my girls are older and ask them what they’d like to do. They’re only in their teens so this type of jewelry is just not even on the radar yet.
