The exceptional Caviar earrings are one of the showcase pieces of the Lee Ohio Fall 2009 Collection. Gorgeous antique Russian art deco fan lever-backs of solid 14k gold are featured within the piece. Each of these beautiful antique fans has been stamped with the hallmark of the Soviet Union, 583 and with 585, indicating they are 14k Gold. Large, smooth hearts of natural Cat's Eye, just over 16 carats each, create the base of the pair. Cat's Eye is also known as Cymophane, the opalescent variety of Chrysoberyl. This lovely stone exhibits exceptional silver-gray chatoyance (the reflective opalescence). Each heart has been garnished with the smallest midnight blue seed pearls (1.5mm) and even more spectacular faceted Cat's Eye. Antiqued sterling silver brushed matte, Rose Gold and Yellow Gold accent. Just a tad under 1.5" in total length. $888.
The Fall 2009 Collection preview will start in the online shop on Wednesday, July 1st 2009.
