Georgian gold and garnet earrings c. 1820 are 15kt gold with foiled garnets. The form, an unusual shape, looks more like an insect than it does the floral form of small garnet earrings we see more often. As there was no electricity at this time, jewelers foiled gemstones and semi precious stones with a sliver of metal or foil material behind the stones to catch and reflect the available light. Very fine in condition, the earrings are English and drop 1 1/2 inches from the point of insertion.
