Set in 15kt gold, these Georgian era saturated pink paste stones are faceted beautifully and foiled to perfection. By the early 19th century the art of foiling paste and gemstones was well advanced and had shined in many nations of the world. Portuguese paste, French paste, and paste of Great Britain were masterful so that the environment would not do damage to the setting or the foil. Emperors and Kings had their own paste makers. The formula for fine paste was secret and died with the paste makers family. These earrings originated in England. The condition remains perfect. The length is 1 1/4 inch. .
