Magnificently large Georgian solitaire paste earrings set a new standard for a signature look. Earrings such as this have been seen in recent films and spread across the pages of the ultra chic fashion magazines.
Equivalent in size each to a 10 carat diamond, these antique round paste earrings are foiled and set closed back in gold over metal. Later shepherd's hook ear wires at 14k yellow gold.
Each is individually hand polished but match beautifully. Dangling just below the ear lobe, they create a bright, stand out look yet don't overwhelm as a modern earring of this type would.
Foiling makes these pastes especially bright and dazzling and enables their unique refractive qualities to virtually glow. Georgian style as sculptured bulbous backs show traditional 18th and earlier 19th century design.
