YARD: exquisite pair of Art Deco earrings

Yard pieces are extremely rare to find, and yet in this auction we have two!, maybe from the same provenance since both are set with rubies. This pair of earrings is an exquisite Art Deco design, so simple that they could not be more elegant. An ellipse set with pave diamonds with two spherical rubies must have been an innovative design back in the 1920's , but it works so well that it looks contemporary!. 

They will be auctioned at Christie's NY on April 12th.
