Georgian Gems: Pearl Diamond Earrings
Always wanted to be in Vogue Magazine? Here is your chance. These earrings are featured in the September 2012 Issue of Vogue page 810 and 822!!!
The jewelers of the early Georgian era held that diamonds were best set in mounts of silver. To protect the wearer from the inevitable process of patination, a wash of gold was typically applied to the surface which had contact with the skin.
Forms of tricorn leaves of silver alternate with rose cut diamonds set in closed back pinched collet mounts to surround a luscious natural pearl. Modern 14k yellow gold ear wires and safety catch have been added to insure the security of the eight (8) rose cut diamonds of an estimated total .40 carats and two natural pearls in this pair of Georgian earrings circa 1800.
Accompanied by a gemological lab certificate for the pearls (see "Measurements & More").
Measurements: 7/8 of an inch (2.1 cm) in length including ear wire by 5/8 of an inch (1.6 cm) in width. Weight of 6.2 grams (4.0 dwt) for the pair.
Condition: Very good; a bit of silver patina; later modern 14k yellow gold ear wires.
Date: Circa 1800.
Note 1: Diamonds have not been removed from their mounts to preserve the integrity of the setting. All diamond weights have been approximated by measurement and formula and may vary from actual weights.
Note 2: Gemological Institute of America (GIA) certifies that the pearls are natural.
