Georgian Silver & Gold, Paste Pear Shaped Drop Earrings

455 Admirers

A beautiful pair of silver and gold backed Georgian earrings. They are set with pastes that have been foiled at the back and pierced with what looks like a black spot. This was to emulate the culet on a diamond. Old mine cut diamonds were cut off at the point on the base so that more light would refract through the stone. Paste jewellery is very collectable today especially when it is in good condition. Sometimes damp can get in to the foil settings over the years and discolour them . These earrings are in excellent condition for their age with good white paste and no discolouration. They were made circa 1820.
