Earrings with coach covers have been on my wish list for forever now, and when these were presented to me whilst on my last buying trip, I was a goner! The coach covers are not only in impeccable condition, but also beautifully crafted and designed - with delicate and dainty Etruscan revival design details. The covers have a rich yellow gold hue to them, with a very light patina.
The covers open to reveal a pair of even more gorgeous old European cut diamonds, with beautiful faceting and makes - they are bright, chunky, and prismatic - catching the light and colors from their surroundings as they articulate with each movement. A true antique jewelry collector's piece, not to mention priced extremely well for what they are.
Victorian coach covers were popular in the era for several reasons: it was considered gauche to wear diamonds during the day (hence you cover them), as well as hide the precious jewels from plain view as the ladies rode in coaches.
The diamonds measure 7.60 x 7.42 and 7.59 x 7.35mm
Colors are estimated to be M, VVS clarities.
Coach covers measure 14.50mm
