Vintage 3.3ct. Diamond Earclips in Platinum, 1960S


Jewelry of the 1960s is characterized by optimism and belief in progress. 

After the organic forms of the fifties, a new desire for geometry returned in the age of the race to the moon. Rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings - the color of the time was again white, like the stars, often combined with blue, like the sky of the night. 

Occasionally, other colored stones in primary colors are found alongside sapphires, but it is the cool sparkle of diamonds, combined with white gold or platinum, that is the main appeal of the jewelry of this period.

The settings of the designs leave behind the heavy lust for shiny yellow gold of late Art Deco and increasingly dissolve into a mesh of white gold rods. The filigree structures of space equipment, the antennas of Sputnik, but also the skeletal structures of the new skyscrapers may have been the inspiration here. 

It is not without reason that a brooch with the name "Cosmos" wins the prize for Jewel of the Year in 1967. And every single piece of jewelry wins lightness, light and elegance.


The earclips presented here are entirely dedicated to this fashion, indeed, show the love for the stars of those years also in their motif. The designs each present an elegant cluster of 19 sparkling brilliant-cut diamonds, accompanied like a shooting star by a tail of 29 baguette-cut diamonds each. These cosmic apparitions sparkle and shine in a truly otherworldly way, thanks to the select qualities of the stones and the delicate platinum that frames them. 


We immediately liked the pair with its powerful modernity.
