Antique Georgian Double Rock Crystal Earrings

$3,800 per set

About

Magnificent, rare in size and glow, these Georgian foiled rock crystal earrings are set in their rounded closed foiled backs and shine brilliantly in sunlight or darkness. These earrings are a treasure of jewelry history and show what the royal love of paste and rock crystal jewelry making was about throughout the Georgian period and through the Victorian era. The top section of the earrings are a faceted diamond shape old mine cut stone of approximately 4 -5 cts in weight. The large teardrop suspended is approximately 12 cts in weight. The condition is excellent. The ear wires, shepherds hooks now, were back to front hooks at one time in their history and have been changed by a previous owner for ease of insertion into the lobe. These are unquestionably scarce earrings. None the less in the last two years I found a similar pair with square top crystals. They are so beautiful that I stretched for both pair. Created in England c. 1820 Weight each earring 4.1 grams. Length: 1 1/4 inches, width 3/8 inch
