Modernist Moonstone Earrings in Gold

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Circa 1970s, 18k, Swiss. The focus of these stylish Mod seventies earrings are their incredible cabochon moonstones. Totaling 17 carats, these captivating stones have a beautifully soft glacial green tone highlighted by an iridescent movement of light. The heavy squared-off four-prong settings give the earrings a cubist look, boldly counterbalancing the shape and color of the stones. Swiss ateliers are known for quality workmanship – these earrings are no exception. Excellent condition.

Remark: "Swiss goldsmiths are fluent with the 'less is more' modernist approach. Their thought-provoking urbane jewelry is charged with visual energy."
