Story

At least two of the archetypal forms designed during the Georgian period have lasted well beyond that time frame – the central bow and teardrop configuration and the floral cluster. This pair of circa 1840 earrings incorporates half cabochons of natural Persian turquoise and half tiny natural seed pearls (untested but assumed natural due to examination and age) set closed back into rose gold over silver.

The flat rose gold back (versus the earlier more sculptured bulbous reverse) is typical of later Georgian work and the three element anatomy employed is a combination of the central ribbon bow motif, flower cluster surmount and pear-shaped pendant drop. The drop, although not literally articulated with the swing center does present the illusion.
