VERY GOOD: These amazingly rare and beautiful Georgian Paste earrings are in incredible condition for their age. Circa 1820, they're over 200 years old, and are just as magical today as the day they were made. (If not more!) The Pastes are in exceptional condition on the whole with just some slight variation in colour; all with a beautiful light and radiance, and you can still see the tiny hand-painted black dots in the center of each- mimicking the Diamonds of their day.
The earrings are of solid construction. They've clearly been made with love, and treated with care will bring many more smiles, "wows" and nods of approval for another 200 years!
