Georgian Cut Steel Dome Earrings Swing and Sway

$1,600

About

Georgian Cut Steel earrings sparkle like diamonds and lend bubble to your smile when you wear them. Each bit of steel is cut, faceted and polished by hand then set into a form created by the jeweler who first punched holes in place for the bits to be riveted in place. Yes, riveted. This way the precious bits remain in place as they have in these earrings for 200 years. The ear wires are gold. Georgian cut steel can be verified by the various sizes of steel bits riveted in the jewel. Later steel was identified by the jeweler saving some time by using the same size steel pieces. Imagine this hand work done by small hands in daylight or candle light. There was no time saving method. No short cut. The work was valued for its time intensive creativity. These earrings are original. They are 1 7/8 inches long and 1 inch wide. The condition is excellent. Each earring is 6.2 grams
