Spessartite Garnet and Diamond Earrings

Spessartite garnets and Fancy Intense Yellow diamonds in custom earrings.

Autumn Leaves

Fiery orange Spessartite garnets dangle from a dazzling pair of diamond-set gold earrings.  Yes ..... those are natural Fancy Intense Yellow diamonds pave set in sculpted leaf-shape tops and round colorless diamonds bezel set between the yellow diamonds and the garnet drops.  The Spessartite garnets are briolette cut to best complement the sparkle of the diamonds.

These earrings were custom created for a client who fell in love with the rich color of the Spessartites and the alluring sparkle of the yellow diamonds.  When she first saw the finished earrings she uttered five short words,  "Judi,  you've done it again!"

These earrings also have a surprise .... the briolette garnets are detachable.  Behind each golden leaf is a small white gold hook from which the briolette drops are suspended.  You can wear the earring tops alone (as shown below),  or dress them up with gemstone drops in just about any flavor you can imagine.

In this rear view you can also see the care with which these earrings were hand crafted.  The yellow diamonds are supported by a sturdy framework of gold which protects and securely holds the gemstones.  Behind the diamonds the goldsmith made small openings  (known as a  joure)  which create a beautiful window-like effect.  The briolette garnets are cap set with a small gold loop at the apex.

Cost: These earrings were custom created for a client who loves the combination of fiery orange Spessartites and sparkling yellow diamonds.  If you would like to create a pair of earrings in this style,   please give us a call  (603 624-8672)  or  send us an email  to discuss design options,  gemstones and cost.


These earrings are just under  1 inch long from the tip of the leaves to the bottom of the briolette garnets.  The earrings without the garnet drops are just over  1/2 inch long.

We can create earrings in this style with the gemstones of your choice.  The leaves could be pave set with fancy color diamonds such as pinks or yellows .... traditional colorless diamonds .... or even a vibrant green gemstone like Tsavorite or Demantoid garnet.  Faceted briolette drops are available in a variety of gemstones.  You choose the gemstone flavors and we will do the rest!

We love to create imaginatively designed earrings and other jewels.
