Georgian Cut Steel Long Earrings.

$2,500

About the Item

Crescent moons, dragon flies and diamond forms make these earrings a geometric delight. They sparkle even with low light at night. All bits of steel were cut and polished by hand then riveted in place to a form that the jeweler created before he made the steel shapes. The reverse shows the rivets placed in brass. The earrings are light in weight and will not weigh on the lobe. Cut steel was immediately valued because the Europeans appreciated the work that went into their creation. It was a time that gold was scarce and jewelry did not have to be precious metal or gemstone to be hailed as desirable. In good antique condition, all parts re original. Length 3 inches Weight 5.3 grams each.
