1940s Hand-carved Aquamarine Dangle Earrings with a Floral Motif 

Artisans took almost translucent aquamarines that present with a blue to natural green color and hand-carved them into three-dimensional images of roses. Their combined weight is 4.0cts. Set in 14k yellow gold, these earrings measure 29.67mm from top to bottom and feature a width of 13.08mm. The earrings are suitable for daily wear and bring a distinct wow factor to the table.

Diamond Ring with a Platinum Setting, Featuring Art Deco Style Elements 

The platinum setting comes from the 1920s, which places it at the beginning of the Art Deco era. The square shape opens the door to inventive designs. It displays with diamonds that artisans cut between 1890 and 1900. One old-mine-cut stone weighs .50cts; you also notice four old-mine-cut diamonds with a combined weight of .70cts and four single-cut diamonds that weigh in at a collective .12cts. This unique piece looks amazing.

At the top, the bracelet has a width of 37.85mm; at the bottom, the width reduces to 11.20mm. When you present her with this timeless beauty, her jaw is sure to drop.
