These Georgian Gold foiled Paste drop earrings are the prettiest pair! Crafted at the turn of the 19th century, this piece is inlaid with two decadent Amethyst Paste gems in delicate lavender shades at the top and with sumptuous pink foiling at the bottom. 

These antique drop earrings will instantly add 19th-century glamour to your outfit! We believe that these earrings were likely crafted from a Georgian parure, with the Pinchbeck drops being a later addition. These earrings will add a delightful flash of purple to even the dullest of mornings!

EXCELLENT-VERY GOOD: This Georgian Gold foiled Paste drop earrings are in wonderful condition. There is one small scratch on one of the gemstones, and the earrings have only some small differences (which leads us to believe that they were formed from a set), but they are very well-matched. The gems are secure in their settings, and the pinchbeck is intact.
