A very uniquely styled pair of 18K yellow gold earrings features princess cut sapphires carefully selected and set to graduate in color saturation from light blue to a rich Ceylon cornflower blue.

Each sapphire was selected for its excellent clarity and color and they are hand set into elegant and stream-lined channel settings. A post back is used for the earrings which dangle 36 mm or a bit less than 11/2 in length and they weigh approximately 4.0 grams of 18K yellow gold. This magnificent piece was designed by Jill Underhill of Color Symphony (http://www.colorsymphony.com) and will be shipped directly from their location in New Hampshire.
