French Late 18th Century Paste Gold Poissarde Earrings

About

"Diamond", "emerald" and "ruby" paste stones, set in 18K gold, decorate these ornate, antique earrings. Described as poissarde (French for fishwife), the earrings were worn by the fishwives of Paris selling their wares in Les Halles Market. They were known as fishwives for their husbands, who were off to sea, and they played a significant role in the French revolution. Made of lightweight gold, the hoop earrings are light and comfortable to wear and the bright colors sparkle.
