Glittered with beautiful natural Emeralds and Diamonds throughout, these fantastic Georgian Catalan natural Emerald Diamond drop earrings are a rare treat, crafted as early as the 1780s.
Our research points to the fact these earrings are of Catalan providence; with the use of natural Emeralds paired with Silver and the prettiest little Diamond accents, all of the materials, motifs and construction techniques are of those used in rare Catalan jewellery! Indeed, this pair wouldn't be out of place in the historical section of any museum worth their salt!
The earrings are certainly eye-catching, measuring over 70mm from top to bottom. They consist of 3 distinct sections; a floral, daisy-like top, a central decorative ribbon motif, and an elegant pear-shaped drop and their original lever-backs are completely intact!
