Story

Worthy of a red carpet event, these Georgian era earrings exhibit a regal length, design and a sophisticated demeanor. Although quite long, these superb 18k yellow gold earrings are, for their size surprisingly not heavy on the ear. Each of the elements of the three part articulated construction is set with a faceted oval paste the color of the popular topaz. Jewelry employing paste gems had become prevalent since the mid 18th century. Lyrical scrollwork, opposing c-forms and engraved detailed decoration add to the beauty of these hand-made early 19th century earrings. Back to front ear wires finish the period pair.

Date: Circa 1830.
