Edwardian French Paste Earrings

SOLD Item 11286

The three part dangle earring dominated the earlier part of the 20th century. Add Edwardian elegance with its open work and curvilinear design and you have a classic pair of earrings. The surmount is reminiscent of a jewel-set crown capping a butterfly shaped central section that suspends a pendant drop. Vividly hued pink pastes with accent highlights of demantoid green pastes join having been set into a trio of free-flowing articulated sections of silver.

Condition: Very good; reverse has light wear and patina; later date 14k yellow gold ear wires; as expected there is some variation in the hues of the pastes.

Measurements; Just shy of 2-1/2 inches (6.4 cm) in length including ear wires and 2-3/16 inches (5.5 cm) without by more than 1 inch (2.6 cm) at the widest. The pair has a total weight of 10.9 grams.

Date & Origin: Circa 1910 and is French in origin.
