EXCELLENT: These Georgian 18ct Gold Garnet cannetille earrings are in fabulous condition considering they are around 200 years old! The 18ct Gold has kept very well, with all of the fine details well-preserved from time. Both of the Garnets are set securely, with no fleabites or scratches to their facets. The butterfly back posts are a later addition, but the earrings sit well on the ear giving great coverage and overall presence. We believe these earrings were likely once part of a larger suite of Georgian jewellery, like an 18ct Gold Garnet parure! Nevertheless, they are ready to make a glittering impact in the 21st century.
