Vintage Buttercup Diamond Earrings

A beautiful pair of vintage diamond earrings made circa 1960. They feature a modern round brilliant diamond weighing approximately 0.25 carats (per earring), sitting in a classic buttercup setting. The back is open allowing the light to  flow through the diamond, creating amazing sparkle and shine. The buttercup style setting was popular during the Victorian era when floral motifs were prominent and this later edition was inspired by those styles. The scalloped edge between the prongs creates a beautiful petal look mimicking the golden flower representing happiness, merriment, and bliss. These earrings would make the perfect everyday pair, that you can dress up or down for any occasion!
