Sapphire Centers and Diamond Halos
Each earring in this set centers on a round blue sapphire, and the two together total 1.40 carats. These are prong set in 18k white gold, and they’re surrounded by halos of round bright cut set diamonds that sit just slightly lower down along the sides of the larger stones. The contrast between the rich blue of the sapphires and the brilliant white of the diamonds brings energy and dynamism to the set, and the halos are lined with milgrain beading for a hint of vintage flair.

Earring Design and Customization Options
While the inner margins of the halos follow the perfectly circular curve of the sapphires, the outer perimeter is octagonal. This creates a more subtle contrast in terms of curves and angles, and it helps to highlight the lovely cut of the sapphires as well. It also reinforces the vintage themes already present, and it adds somewhat of a star-like quality to the design.
Customizing a set of earrings like this could involve substituting different types or colors of gemstones for those used. For instance, pink diamonds or sapphires in the center could integrate romantic and floral overtones. Alternately, switching the placement of the colored and white stones would have a dramatic impact as well, and using a different color metal is a good way to intensify contrast also.
