Antique Georgian Pink Paste Ear Drops of Rare Size and Color

About the Item

Lovers of Georgian paste rejoice as never before have you seen original pink paste earrings in this grand size. The stones are approximately 10 cts in size. Note the backs and how beautifully they are engraved while silver set and foiled. A rich deep pink is the most sought after color and exactly the color of these rarities. The shepherd hook earwires have been added. All paste earrings began their journey as buttons, decorations sewn into Georgian gowns or parts of necklaces. These came to me as you see them. My guess is they were once a part of a riviere as the backs are wonderful to see. They are over 200 years of age and in excellent condition. Indeed they are dramatic and can be worn day or evening even with formal attire. I envision them on every gender. They sparkle and shimmer day or evening. How romantic they were in candlelight. There was no middle class in the Georgian era. These were worn at court or by aristocracy. Now you can enjoy this precious bit of historical jewelry. Measurements 3/4 of an inch wide and 1 1/4 inch in length. Weight 3.7 grams
