Do we have a thread for vintage earrings? Would love to see what everyone has. Bonus if anyone has photos of diamond halo jackets with vintage small diamond earrings. I have a set and am trying to decide if I should get/make a new set of studs or make a set of jackets for them....mine are tiny.. 0.06 ct VS H 1586638507058.png

9k rose gold fleur de lis studs, c.1910, probably English.
Got them at Goodwill.

They originally had pastes in them - I swapped in a pair of oec’s. I wear them daily - I accidentally don’t have any other earrings right now. The posts are slightly thicker than I was used to but they’re so pretty I decided to leave them as they are.

Rear view (back when they held pastes):

Lately I have been craving a pair of mine cuts, about .75ct each, in teeny claw prong studs. But I haven’t found them yet!

I also have this set. Poor things rarely get worn even though they are absolutely gorgeous. I like flowers in the garden...less on myself. I will try to take a better photo of them, this one is terrible.

Love this thread and I look forward to drooling over photos.
I love vintage earrings so much. It is all I purchase now.
I don't want to duplicate all the photos I shared so will just link this here.
And I will share some photos just because. :)




My most recent pair. OMC clusters. Yummy. They have become one of my favorites.

Next pair is probably one of my most worn pair as I Love Blue and I wear Blue often. Antique sapphire and diamonds. One of my favorite pairs...antique sapphire diamond dangles.

Next pair is from @athenaworth I love these and wear them often as they go with everything and are just my style.

Next pair from grace. They’re OECs and OMCs.

This pair I had reproduced as the originals sold before I could snap them up. I love these and they’re different than the originals but in the same spirit if you kwim.

Ok I have room to add another so here is another photo of the Lang pears.

Please everyone share lots of photos here. Something to brighten the days.

Please talk me out of these as I’m supposed to be saving up for a ruby ring but these literally jumped up and tackled me today at my local jeweler!
He is letting me babysit them for the weekend.
They are 14k and platinum with OEC diamonds in the swirl and .60 tw rubies that have some minor abrasions but look clean under my loupe and with a slightly pink modifier.
They are clip earrings which is something I’ve never ever worn so I’m getting used to them right now!
The way they are designed putting a post on may F564F342-5EBD-4169-85CB-9361FDD810A9.jpeg 4ACA291F-24A1-4DFA-AB9A-5668FD5E3699.jpeg AA245225-A9D8-42A8-95BC-5BFB60D4C2CD.jpeg 099DEE81-5F71-4D48-A6EB-CFDA387E371D.jpeg be tricky.
I guesstimate 1930-40’s era.
My jeweler said he had a dealer interested because he thought they looked very Cartier but I can’t find any hallmark or anything on them and boy did I try!

Love them on you.:love: Très sophistiqué. Are they comfortable? Wear them and see what you think. I cannot talk you out of them because they may be perfect for you! And they will go nicely with a new ruby ring to come. Just saying. :bigsmile:

I can see that but then again maybe it’s a seashell.
Let’s see if anyone else sees only shrimp cocktail .....
