VERY GOOD: These beautiful Georgian Paste Silver earrings are in very good condition and have been gently polished to restore their original splendour. The Paste gems themselves are excellent, with no damage, chips or abrasions whatsoever, and still have a good sparkle and fire to them. They're old mine cut- just like old antique Diamonds, and look just as wonderful! The Paste is original Georgian era, and have been kept in their authentic Georgian settings. The backs have been changed to screw-backs (probably around the year 1900) and they both work perfectly, so they're comfortable to wear and stay put nicely.
