Belais 18K White Gold & Diamond Screw Back Earrings, Art Deco, Octagonal, 3.2 Grams, 1/2 Carat TW #c402
For offer today, I have this magnificent pair of Art Deco 18K white gold and diamond earrings from Belais Manufacturing Co.!

Jewelry by Belais is highly coveted by collectors. The company developed a formula for white gold and received a patent for it in 1920. The white gold was extremely popular during the 20's and it even became known as "Belais metal". Owning a piece of Belais white gold jewelry is quite special, given this historical significance and the impact it had on jewelry design and manufacturing.

These beautiful Belais earrings are comprised of fine 18K white gold on the fronts and 14K yellow gold on the backs. The fronts of the earrings have a three-dimensional, stepped design of repeating octagonal shapes, and the outer edge has lovely chased accents. Each earring holds a 0.25-carat sparkly old European cut diamond in the center. The earrings close with screw back closures. They are absolutely superb! 

The earrings measure about 9/16 inch long, 3/8 inch wide and weigh 3.2 grams. They are signed "Belais" and "18K" on the backs of the earring fronts and 14K on the earring backs. The diamonds measure approximately 4mm/0.25-carat weight each, 0.50-carat weight total. The stones tested definitively in the diamond range on a Presidium gem tester.

I can't remember the last time I ran across a pair of Belais earrings, so these exquisite beauties are a rare and wonderful find indeed! The earrings are extremely well made and the diamonds are so bright and sparkly. They would make a superb addition to a fine jewelry collection, and since they can be worn for so many different occasions, they are also quite versatile. The earrings are in excellent vintage condition and ready to wear or to gift! They are simply exquisite!
