Georgian Pyrope Garnet Pendant Earrings
Ornate, long and light in the late Georgian tradition, these drop earrings of 14k yellow gold originally began life as day night earrings. The lozenge shaped surmount, secured to the pendant drop with an “O” fitting, features four (4) rich claret colored faceted garnets enclosing a central pyrope garnet.
Open work 14k yellow gold with scroll and swirl designs frame a series of flower motifs set closed back with the sumptuous faceted garnets. Ridged crimped collets caress each of sixty-eight (68) garnets in both earrings.
