It has been awhile since I have posted but I felt these are definately post "worthy". I have looked for so long for a pair of sapphire and diamond earrings to complete my sapphire and diamond collection. Great things come to those who wait. I believe these are true vintage. Looking at the way they clip in the back, they are like lever backs, but they have a locking hook somewhat like on a bracelet. As much as I have admired jewelry throughout the years, I don't think I have ever seen that. I didn't get pics of that part of the earring but I figured you wanted to see the good parts. LOL! After louping them, the diamonds appear to have a vintage cut like minor cuts. They all have high crowns. The sapphires are a nice blue but they are not as blue as in the photos. They are a tiny bit abbrated but only seen when louped. The bezeled diamonds are miligrained and appear a slight champagne...maybe OEC's. Mix all of this together and I feel they are true vintage which I love!!
