Antique Edwardian Earrings of Pink Paste Earrings

About the Item

Superb quality earrings designed with the flourish of garlands, have been made of foiled pastes in the manner of Georgian and Victorian earrings. From the tiny pastes to the large teardrops, all stones were cut and polished then set like gemstones. No time was spared in the design of the silver which is rounded, pillow like and smooth. The brilliant pastes are the rare pink color that flatters all women. Paste this fine was an art form. The jeweler who made this pair of chandelier ear drops, knew jewelry history and had the desire to create the same quality that was typical of earlier eras. This was not out of line with the early 1900's. You will recall that the Art Nouveau Movement which ran from 1895-1915 emphasized the hand of the artist over machine made objects. This pair of earrings remains in superb, original condition.
