Story

A Ferris wheel of prismatic flickering light – this pair of Georgian earrings is a must-have possession. Two outer orbits of forty one (41) pastes revolve around the core of a flower form. All are closed backed and foiled for maximum refraction. The setting is silver and the back rose gold over silver. The earrings are most likely buttons beautifully transposed to baubles for the ear. Dating to the very early 19th century, these were just found on our most recent Parisian buying excursion.
