Georgian Paste Snowflake Earrings

$2,600

About

Black dot paste are set in a silver snowflake pattern that sway from your ears in these Georgian earrings. The ear wires are gold. Paste was an art form that dated back to the ancient veneration of glass. It was not an imitation jewel. The paste stones were well faceted and placed in closed back settings that had a thin bit of foil under the stone to capture the light of candles or available daylight. In the Georgian and Victorian periods, royalty had their own paste makers who were so prized that they kept their formulas secret. Napoleon gifted Josephine with a paste parure. When paste was made well by expert tastemakers it shows no erosion after two hundred years as the settings were too tight to allow harm from the elements. These earrings are in fine bright condition. The length is a wearable 1 7/16ths. Weight of both earrings are 7.8 grams
