Since 1912, Oscar Heyman has been crafting exquisite jewelry by hand in their New York workshops. Driven to acquire the finest materials, Heyman dispatches teams of gemologists and expert stone buyers to source gemstones from around the world. Cat’s-eye chrysoberyls are true rarities and are found only in a few deposits. Known for the optical phenomenon chatoyancy, cat’s eyes have the unique ability to reflect light in a way that resembles the slit eye of a cat.
The cat’s eyes in these earrings are surrounded by well saturated yellow diamonds and a series of perfectly matched oval diamonds that create a scalloped edge. A single yellow diamond on the reverse of each earring indicates that these are one-of-a-kind, made specifically for Tiina Smith.
