Story

This pair of five-element day night earrings is one of the finest Georgian garnet earrings ever offered by The Three Graces. Beautifully articulated from surmount to pendant drop, each of the 9k rose gold earrings has twenty-seven (27) flat cut almandine garnets foiled and set closed back in rub over pinched collets.

The surmount is a flower cluster form and features seven (7) of these richly hued stones. The leaves and drop are all aglow with twenty (20) of these coveted gems. Perfect harmony and symmetry combines with masterful craftsmanship to create a wearable historical treasure worthy of placement in a museum. Front to back ear wires complete the period earrings.

Note their articulated structure, swaying with each movement of the head. Evident is their date by the use of almandine garnets, so typical of the time period with those purplish hues. Their flat profile yet eloquent overall form, and their day night structure speak to the same time period. Rarely seen today, a collector's dream.

The earrings arrive in a later date custom made box from D.S. Lavender of London.

Provenance: Purchased by the President of The Three Graces for her personal collection in 2000 - 2001 at D.S. Lavender. Worn only a few times since and safely tucked away, D.S. Lavender is an English purveyor of fine jewelry, portrait miniatures and objects of vertu. Established in 1948 and still exists today, Mr. Lavender's taste and offerings are world renowned and a visit with him is stepping back into a more refined and distinguished world with a true gentleman.

Historical note: Around 1790 the sensibilities of fashion and jewelry turned from supremely ornate, heavy and opulent to flat profiles, lighter in weight and more geometric with less extravagant gemstones. This was mostly due to the Napoleonic fashion and the push away from anything resembling the old guard and the excesses of the royals of the day. Wars also caused a scarcity of gems and precious metals, so in turn where necessity breeds invention, jeweler's cleverly worked their magic to make less metal and often less grandiose gemstones look grander than the sum of their parts.
