The sapphires are of medium to dark colour saturation, and are well matched for colour but each shows some unevenness of colour saturation within the stone when tilted. Some straight colour bands are also visible when tilted. The sapphires have some light nibbles/abrasions to facet edges, one has a small chip to a facet edge near the bottom. One sapphire has two nicks to the back. Some internal inclusions to the sapphires, sample sapphire measures approximately 0.9cm x 0.6cm. Cluster overall measures approximately 1.5cm x 1.3cm. Two of the surrounding diamonds on one earring have a chip to the edge of the table facet, one chip to one diamond on the other earring. The diamonds are attractive white stones, all have one or two internal inclusions. Please note the fronts of the earrings are silver coloured metal, the backs are yellow gold coloured. Structurally in good condition, would benefit from professional cleaning.
