Estate Aquamarine, Sapphire, Diamond and Gold Earrings

A pair of American Estate 18 karat yellow and white gold earrings with aquamarines, sapphires and diamonds by Zwikker & Zacher. These earrings have 4 oval aquamarines with an approximate total weight of 34.00 carats, 28 oval sapphires with an approximate total weight of 10.00 carats, and 34 round-cut diamonds with an approximate total weight of .68 carats. Detachable drops. With original box. Beloved as the birthstone for the month of March, the name aquamarine is derived from the Latin word for sea water. Known and treasured since before modern times, the 1st Century A.D. historian and philosopher Pliny the Elder wrote of the stone, "the lovely aquamarine, which seems to have come from some mermaid''s treasure house, in the depths of a summer sea, has charms not to be denied." Roman legend had it that the stone absorbed and preserved young love, and was the most popular stone for marriage and morning gifts. (A morning gift is an object presented to the bride by her groom the morning after their wedding.) In fact, this custom may well be the origin of the "something blue" that is traditionally presented to a bride before her nuptials. The stone was also believed to protect travelers, particularly sailors, and is often associated with the far-traveling St. Thomas the Apostle. From ancient through Medieval times aquamarine was the preferred stone for the making of fortune-tell ... ing crystal balls for its supposed "divining power," and similarly used as an antidote to eye illnesses for the same reason. This particular piece exemplifies the beauty of blue aquamarine, especially with its stunning blue sapphire and diamond accents.
