A pair of Columbian emerald and diamond pendant earrings, by David Jerome, set throughout with twelve oval mixed-cut emeralds, each earring with a trefoil-shaped terminal supporting a fringe of pear-cut diamonds below, suspended from two vertically set emeralds between star-shaped diamond spacers, mounted in white precious metal and with post fittings, the butterfly fittings signed ‘David Jerome’ and stamped ‘18ct gold (750)’, total emerald weight 5.65 carats, total diamond weight 2.93 carats, accompanied by a WGI Report. £16,000-£18,000


The emeralds are all cut from the same large rough emerald crystal purchased personally by the maker/designer, direct from the Chivor mine in Columbia, hence they are all perfectly matched in colour and quality.
