These Georgian Paste cluster earrings are simply enchanting!
Set in high purity 18ct Gold hooks, with closed back Silver settings and the most beautiful flower-like design, they rival the finest Georgian Diamond earrings, but as a fraction of the cost!
Invented during the early 1700's, Paste jewellery became incredibly fashionable with the French high society, and in some cases was held in even higher esteem than Diamonds and precious jewels.
Fast forward to today and Georgian jewellery is enjoying a renaissance, (no pun intended!) with everyone from fashion houses to stylists to jewellery bloggers high-lighting it beauty and quality.
These beautiful antique Paste earrings have a gorgeous life and radiance! The foil backed setting ensure thy glow from within. Although they were initially designed for drawing admirers under candle-light they look just as gorgeous under modern day lighting, or indeed in the sunlight.
The 18ct Yellow Gold hooks are quite thick, and the earrings a fair weight- so you can be confident they'll stay firmly in place when worn.
They're a fantastic heirloom that look just as great with casual or occasion wear. They'd made a great wedding gift or gift to a beloved bridesmaid, but are also something that will indubitably be worn and enjoyed fr many occasions!
