Cool as ice rock crystal and glowing 18k gold have been transformed into wearable earrings.
Likely these 18th-century baubles were buttons or cuff buttons, but with the addition of 14k shepherd's hook ear wires, may now live again.
The particular pattern of incised rays that is present on the reverse is often typical of some forms of jewelry from the mid-18th century or earlier.
Cushion cut, the rock crystals reside in wells of gold with closed backs that are foiled beneath.
A safety catch ensures these stay put. Their presence is small and subtle for everyday enjoyment.
