These Georgian Paste drop earrings are in great condition, especially considering they were handcrafted two centuries ago! The Paste gemstones are both in perfect condition with no nibbles or flea bites and both are held securely in place by their settings. There is some wear to the back of one of the Silver settings, this is not visible when worn and in no way effects the integrity of the piece. There is also some faint signs of ageing to the foiled backings under very close inspection, only to be expected from a pair of antique earrings of this type. The Gold is bright with no wear keeping these superb earrings securely attached for your peace of mind!
