The main portion of each earring is dominated by a cushion shaped checkerboard cut tanzanite that’s bezel set in 14k white gold. The two stones combined total 2 carats exactly, and they exhibit a rich yet delicate bluish-purple color that contrasts wonderfully with the silvery shine of the white gold.
Milgrain and Filigree
The top of the bezel settings surrounding the tanzanite are lined with double rows of milgrain beading, and this detail helps to reinforce the vintage themes already present in the set while also highlighting the elegant shape of the settings. Although they follow the contours of the stones for the most part, these settings curve outward in the middle of each straight side, forming points that hang at the compass positions when the earrings are worn.

This detail helps to give them a more delicate and organic feel, and the filigree baskets that wrap around the backs of the stones help to reinforce this feeling as well. The baskets also provide a connection point to the delicate findings above, and their openness ensures that plenty of light can reach the stones from all sides.
To put your personal mark on a set like this, you may want to choose a different type of stone for the center, or you could switch to rose or yellow gold to bring some classical warmth to the design. On the other hand, if you wanted to take things in a more contemporary direction, you could eliminate the milgrain and have the bezel setting follow the contours of the tanzanites more closely.
