Playing Solitaire - Dazzling Georgian Paste Earrings


Mutability of jewelry is similar to that philosophical tradition of alchemy – the ability to transform one element to 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 equal in size to a 6 carat diamonds are entrancing! Each is 1/2 of an inch in diameter, foiled and set closed back in silver with pinched collets and incised details. Shimmering, both appear white and glow with a soft intensity. Please note the bulbous sculpted backs with the later date gold cap backing and ear wires. Resembling pastes but even more luminous, these are THE wear-every-day pair.

Date: Circa 1790.
