Story

Jewelers of old are not the only ones who re-configured and redesigned jewelry. Here we have an example of a “modern” conversion from a pair of circa 1800 cufflinks. Still very clear and white, a pair of superb black dot pastes set into the characteristic pinched collect silver mounts. With “a tap of the magic wand” and the addition of later date 14k yellow gold ear wires, these remarkably refractive pastes have been transformed into a pair of wondrous black dot paste earrings. Voila!
