The paisley shape is a little bit flower, a little bit curved feather believed to date back to the 11th century, possibly in Persia, or possibly in India near Kashmir. By the 16th century, the abstracted shape adorned luxurious hand-woven Kashmir shawls worn by Persian royalty. Its fluid organic shape has inspired many a pieces of jewelry throughout the last century, particularly diamond jewelry. These Contemporary Pearl Diamond Paisley Drop Earrings, made in the Contemporary era, circa 2010s, are crafted in 18K white gold and feature single round pearls—one white and one black—each with an approximate size of 11.85 mm surrounded with 28 round and 6 marquise-shape diamonds with an estimated total weight of 6.84 carats of G-H-I color and VS-SI clarity. The two paisley shapes frame the face in mirror image symmetry. The earrings are designed for pierced ears, outfitted with posts and French clips.

Pearls and diamonds are a match made in heaven, with the rich luster of the pearl complementing the dazzling sparkle of the diamonds, balancing each other like yin and yang. In fact, the earrings lightly suggest the well-known Chinese symbol consisting of a circle divided into two teardrop-shaped halves with each half contains a small circle of the opposite color. The black pearl earring might represent the Yin side, and the white pearl earring might represent the Yang. However, if you try to put these two parts together, they do not quite fit. No matter. The black and white pearls will balance each other with complementary forces. It is said that black pearls bring good luck, fortune, and abundance in the life of the wearer. White pearls symbolize innocence, purity, peace, beauty, new beginnings, and sincerity.

The configuration of diamonds around the pearls is lovely and variously sparkling owing to the variety of cuts. Each pearl accented with 3 marquise diamond flourishes above while the round brilliant cuts trace the rest of the outline of the pearls and the overall paisley shape.

Diamond weight approx. 6.84 carats total of round and marquise shape diamonds; estimated G-H-I color, VS-SI clarity. Size of pearls are approximately 11.85mm each. Overall weight approx. 18.6 grams, made in 18k white gold. Circa 2010s.
