A superb pair of gold, diamond and garnet 'button' stud clip earrings. The 2.1cm diameter round buttons are textured 14 karat yellow gold that has been centrally set each with a brilliant cut diamond of G colour and SI2 clarity which have been star grain set. The border of the earrings is set fully with round rose cut garnets which have been channel set and are 'bright dark orangey brown' totalling 64 pieces over the two earrings. To the rear of each is a post and hinged clip fitting which are both working well and are secure. The pair have marks indicating they were made in Italy, likely in the 1970s or 1980s. An excellent pair of button earrings suitable for regular wear.
