An exquisite pair of mid century, coral and diamond ear clips mounted in 18 karat yellow and white gold. Each clip contains 22 perfectly matched pieces of round cabochon cut coral, accented by brilliant cut and baguette cut diamonds. The fittings to the rear are 'hinged clips' which are working well and are secure. These earrings have marks to the clips, likely a registration or makers mark, however are rubbed and illegible. Originally this pair of clips were together with a matched brooch, which was marked 'DEPOSE SSM', indicating French manufacture, leading thought that the clips are also French. The pair date to circa 1960, and are a perfect example of 'Retro' period jewellery at its best.
