Abracadabra: Georgian Rock Crystal Earrings
Mutability of jewelry is similar to that philosophical tradition of alchemy – the ability to transform one element to that of another, typically more precious. Here we see buttons or cuff links from the Georgian period “magically” changed into a pair of silver earrings. Luscious rock crystals each equal in size to a 4 carat diamond and approximately 7/16 of an inch in diameter have been foiled and set closed back into silver with pinched collets. Please note the bulbous sculpted backs with the added later date gold cap backing and ear wires. Resembling pastes, but even more luminous, these are THE wear-every-day pair.
Date: Circa 1790.
Measurements: 5/8 of an inch (1.5 cm) in length by 7/8 of an inch (1.1 cm) in width. Weight of 3.3 grams (2.1 dwt) for the pair.
Condition: Excellent; later 14k yellow gold ear wires and a small gold cap backing. Most likely converted from buttons or cuff links.
