Vintage 9ct Gold Smoky Quartz Stud Earrings
A stylish pair of smoky quartz stud earrings from the 1960s-70s.
The settings are crafted from 9ct yellow gold with attractive foliate filigree work around the basket. The claw-set stones measure 9mm in diameter and are the most delightful mushroom colour, with overtones of apricot and the occasional surprising flash of ceylon blue.
Large (and sparkly!) enough to draw the eye, but not too over the top – these studs are the perfect size and weight for comfortable all-day wear.
In excellent vintage condition with no chips or abrasions to the quartz, they fasten securely with 14ct gold butterfly backs.
A lovely wearable pair of vintage earrings.
