Bell and Bird Diamond Poissarde Earrings
This design is inspired by French 18th century poissarde earrings, which are elongated oval hoop earrings. This style was associated with the fishermen's wives of Paris, who also played a significant role during the French Revolution.
Our modern interpretation contains approximately 4.50 carats of antique marquise cut diamonds. The stones are set horizontally, following the arch of a curve. Entirely hand fabricated, the stones are set in 18k gold in our signature cutaway settings. The hinged backs are carefully engineered to counterbalance the weight of the diamonds and hang perfectly.
1815 W. 35TH ST
After nine years in our original location we moved into our ‘blue house’. The building is a 1924 bungalow that has been completely restored and converted into our showroom and workshop. The front of the house is decorated with antiques and art acquired on our travels. Much of the decorative art is available for purchase, as we love to continually redecorate with our evolving collection of unique finds.
