Condition

VERY GOOD. These Georgian Pinchbeck long floral drop earrings are in very good condition! The Pinchbeck drops are perfectly formed, with with a rich buttery tone that flawlessly matches the 18ct Gold hooks. Upon very close inspection, one of the earrings has a small star detailing missing, and on the other two stars that centre the flowers are missing. Due to the abundance of intricate and ornate detailing, this is not immediately obvious, so much so that we almost didn't spot it ourselves! These antique flower earrings were made to accompany any evening attire.
