A wonderful pair of 18 karat yellow gold pierced ear clips in the form of peacock fans. The tips of each 'fan' are set with four yellow gold claw settings which each contain a brilliant cut pink red ruby and below which sits a single pear cut amethyst. These earrings date to the mid 20th century in what is known as the 'retro' period where bright, colourful and bold gold jewels were popular. The earrings each have a yellow gold post and hinged clip fitting which leaves them sit comfortably and flat on the ear. A beautiful pair of ear clips which are casual enough to wear with jeans to buy groceries, yet glamorous enough for a black tie dinner.
