About

We offer a pair of hand made Pinchbeck earrings, feather light, with masterful details of granulation, filigre, wirework and an applique of a silver flower on each earring Unfortunately Pinchbeck was used for a short period of time in the 18th and early 19th centuries It is not made any longer as the secret of the Pinchbeck alchemy died with Christopher and Edward Pinchbeck. Christopher, the father of Edward experimented to create gold from metal. Rather he accomplished devising a formula that looks like gleaming natural gold, is as durable as gold, never changes color, and lasts lifetimes.. However, pieces are scarce as it has become sought after by antique jewelry lovers, art and jewelry historians, those who want only lightweight earrings, and all who have an eye for beauty. No other jeweler made Pinchbeck at any time in history. The full recipe never leaked out of the family. It died out and was replaced by gold casing and gold plated or gold filled jewelry. The earrings are a beautiful warm gold color and comes with the light weight are the advantages of Pinchbeck. Perfect condition
