Vintage earrings naturally evoke a sense of romance and sophistication with which modern jewelry pieces cannot compare. Imbued with the story of a previous owner, a pair of ornate classic diamond stud earrings becomes more than an jewelry accessory; it becomes an heirloom rich with history. Antique style diamond earrings are highly ornamental, with delicate filigree mountings or embellished motifs of flowers, birds or butterflies. Un-apologetically dramatic, retro style diamond drop earrings showcase confident femininity, eye-catching movement and singular design. Whether inspired by Victorian, Edwardian or Art-Deco design, antique jewels are elegant without exception, and they liberally embrace a sentimental decorative flourish that has become the charming hallmark of those eras.
