A wonderful pair of late Georgian earrings, made circa 1820. They are silver with a gold wash on the back and are set with paste. You can see the black spot inside each paste, a trick that the Georgians employed by cutting the silver foil behind the paste in a small dot which imitated the culet on a diamond. When worn in a candlelit setting these earrings would have really come to life and achieved the desired effect of looking like diamonds. They are as striking in the modern age as they were then.
