Description : Known as Dormeuse or sleepers, these small earrings are very comfortable to wear, the idea being that they need never be removed. This pair consists of a small, tear or pear shaped surmount in gold, centered by a flower-shaped colette-set tiny diamond. A larger pear floats around the center and small scrolls adorn top and bottom of the surmounts. A pair of gold loops connect the tops to the drops, allowing them to swing freely as the wearer moves. The larger pear-shaped rose-cut diamonds in the drops are set within a gold colette and flower-shaped open gallery.
Simple gold wires are easy to insert and very comfortable to wear.
Pretty and full of movement, they are sure to catch the eye.
These are highly versatile little earrings, perfect for everyday wear.

Marks and Metal: wires have lozenge maker's mark and two other French hallmarks, including the eagle head denoting 18k gold, made in Paris.

Condition: Good with minor wear commensurate with age. Please see enlarged pictures and don't hesitate to ask questions which we will do our best to answer.
Independent appraisal available to new owner.
