These scrumptious Georgian flat Garnet earrings are set in 9ct Gold and have the most delectable, rich colour! The Garnets are a deep red wine hue, and are foil-backed so they have a gorgeous fiery glow from within.
The simple style of these oval drops is elegant yet undeniably beautiful. They'll take you anywhere... from the office, to shopping with the girls, to a romantic date night- they look fantastic no matter if you're wearing jeans or a LBD!
We especially love the smooth buttery closed-back setting of the Gold, (-which is synonymous with authentic Georgian jewellery), as well as the delicate crimped edge of the Gold around the stones.
ERA: Georgian, c.1800-1820.
MEASUREMENTS: The earrings measure 18mm top to bottom.
The Garnets measure 8mm wide x 10.5mm tall.
MATERIALS: 9ct Gold, Georgian Flat-cut Garnet (foiled).
HALLMARKS: Tested as solid 9ct Gold throughout.
EXCELLENT: These Georgian flat Garnet earrings are in excellent condition throughout. The glossy Garnets are free from any chips or damage, and the 9ct Gold button-back settings are beautifully smooth. We love the scrumptious deep red wine colour of the Garnets, and the fact the original foil is intact after over 200 years! ..(This is what gives them such an incredible glow when the light hits them!)
The scrolled butterfly stud backs are lovely and secure, although it's worth mentioning they are a later, more contemporary addition.
