!If you adore antique cut steel jewellery as we do, then you'll love these splendid rare Georgian cut steel tassel earrings!

These fun metallic tassels were originally designed to catch the eyes of an admirer in candlelight, way back during the 17th Century! But today they look just as good with a glamorous evening dress or a sleek suit.

It's amazing to think that each and every cut steel "bead was crafted by hand with great skill and expertise, and it's this fine craftsmanship that really speaks to us.

These elegant antique earrings have aged remarkably well and treated with care will still look just fabulous in another 200 years!
