In each of these French Boucheron Estate earclips from 1950, two 18K yellow gold squares with 24 brilliant cut diamonds scattered over both fields of platinum merge into one another. A millegrain rim unfolds into a double terrace to enframe the exuberant shimmer of the total of 3.60 carat weight in diamonds. These stunning jewels could be your highlight of experiencing true Parisian Fifties sophistication.
