Vintage, 1930s to 1980s
Outstanding workmanship on these beautiful Shibuichi earrings, each adorned with a single Diamond melee.
Shibuichi is a Japanase Metalwork technique. The traditional alloy is 5% Silver and 95% Copper. Variations on this formula have been created by experienced artisans. The alloy is then treated to create the colors. Traditionally a blue gray metallic sheen as can be seen on the reverse of each earring.
Above the iridescent gardenscape is a single genuine Diamond set in Yellow Gold. Karat is unknown, it is not possible to test the tiny settings without damaging these beautiful drops.
Measurements including the ear wire (which is Sterling) is 1 7/8" long. The drop itself, not inluding the ring or loop on the top is 1 3/8" long by 6mm wide and 1.5mm thick. They are incredibly comfortable to wear.
Unsigned, estimated to date from the 1980's as part of the Art to Wear movement.
This information is intended to help you understand our sizing methods.
Please note many small measurements are in millimeters. It is a Jewelry Industry standard for accuracy.
You can download and print the Ring Sizing Chart. Make sure to follow the directions closely for best accuracy. Most rings can be sized unless otherwise noted. Cost of sizing is not included, please inquire with ring information and size required for an estimate.
Our model's hand is approximately 5" wide or 12 cm as seen in this image:
We measure bracelets based on their wearable length, not the actual length. We do this because chunky bracelets will have a smaller wearable length than the actual length as the thickness of the bracelet reduces the internal measurement. If at any time you would like the actual length and is not in the description, please feel free to contact us.
