These stunning stud earrings feature round checkerboard cut aquamarines bezel set in white gold, accented with filigree, decorative beading, and milgrain. They’re at once simple and intricately detailed, and that combination produces a distinctive look that captures the classical aesthetic while giving it a unique twist. These are also great pieces to use as inspiration when you’re beginning the custom design process, and you can work with our team to modify them on their own or as part of a set that includes a matching pendant or ring. Design Your Own Earrings
The centerpieces of this set are two aquamarines that together total 1.50 carats. They’re round and checkerboard cut, which creates a pattern of squares that alternate light and dark as the stones are viewed from different angles. Their delicate blue color contrasts subtly but significantly with the silvery shine of the metal they’re set in, adding to the beauty of both elements.
Filigree and Milgrain
A line of milgrain beading runs around the perimeter of the bezel setting holding each aquamarine, and this detail continues down onto the ornate basket behind the stone as well. The basket is made of filigree in a pattern that incorporates triangles and lines accented with larger decorative beads in addition to the milgrain. The triangles are filled with these larger beads, and a line of them runs around the top margin of the filigree section, with milgrain providing the perfect frames for each of these elements. Earrings
When you’re interested in developing your own unique design based on these earrings, you may want to start by considering a different type or shape of gemstone. Pear, oval, and cushion cut stones are all options that could work well in this framework, and you could also switch to a sapphire to open up more color possibilities. Changing the type of metal used to rose or yellow gold is worth exploring too, as both of those metals would add a classical warmth to the design.
