Georgian Foiled Paste Button Earrings, 9ct Gold French Hooks

Sold
SKU: x5210

SOLD!

An exquisite pair of Georgian foiled Paste button earrings! Akin to highly domed buttons falling just below the lobe, they are inlaid with large hand cut Diamond paste, with a shimmering foiled back allowing her facets to dance beneath the light.

Much of the beauty and appeal of antique Paste jewellery is that it was such a difficult and labour-intensive thing to produce. The special Paste glass was cut and polished by hand so that it shone and glittered to mimic the scintillation of precious gemstones

The crisp pie crust settings are illuminated by her desirable patina that has accrued within her grooves. With her French 9ct Gold hooks, these lovely ladies have it all!

Condition

GOOD-VERY GOOD: A pair of rare authentic Georgian foiled Paste button earrings offered in great condition. The aged patina on the silver pie crust settings bringing added drama to the foiled gems, and the gems themselves have a white body but underneath display the champagne and apricot hues that only true 18th and 19th-century jewellery can possess! The hooks are tested solid 9ct Gold and hold the drops securely in the ear. They are rated as good because the conversion to earrings from the original buttons, (no doubt done nearly 200 years ago) is a little messy. Nevertheless, they are a charming pair of true Georgian earrings with bags of character and beauty.
