Diamond Poissarde Earrings

18th-century French poissarde earrings inspire our modern design. The classic poissarde is a hoop differentiated by an elongated oval loop, often with an 'S' curve to balance weight and hang straight. This style was associated with the fishermen's wives of Paris, who also played a significant role during the French Revolution.

Diamond Poissarde Earrings

Our modern interpretation of an 18th-century design 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 straight. 

Made in our signature 18k "old" gold. 

The earrings measure .75" in drop length.
