Antique Armenian Made Blue Enamel and Pave Diamond Bird Earrings

$0.00

These are gorgeous enamel and pave diamond set bird earrings made by an Armenian artisan called Master Artin who was working as a goldsmith in Istanbul at the turn of the 20th Century. 

The Ottoman era birds are made from 6K gold or copper and have a beautiful blue hue of enamel with gold detailing to extenuate the feathers. The head and tail have pave-set diamonds. From the claw of the birds hangs a faceted blue stone echoing the color of the bird. I believe that this was a later addition to add to the elegance of these earrings. The ear wires are latch back and are a replacement. They have more of a  rose gold, coppery color. 

There is a slight variation in size and color between the two birds but all the diamonds are in place and it is a most charming and well-made pair of earrings to treasure forever.
