The sapphires have been certified by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and have an estimated combined total weight of approximately 3 carats. The sapphires are certified natural with no detection of any treatment or enhancements. Each blue sapphire is haloed by 12 antique Old European cut diamonds. The earrings have an estimated combined total diamond weight of 0.75 carats. The Old European cut diamonds grade approximately I-J in color and SI1 in clarity. These timeless sapphire and diamond earrings are the perfect everyday piece. Historically blue sapphire is symbolic of fidelity, loyalty, and truth.

The settings are crafted from 14K gold and platinum and feature easy to use push back clasp closures.
