These darling Georgian Paste earrings are so demure, don't you think?! Here at Lillicoco we adore the mysterious appeal of antique Paste jewellery, and these beautiful rectangular Paste earrings are no exception!
Foiled for a luminous fire, and coloured like rare Imperial Topaz, these gorgeous studs have a pretty orange hue; the colour of good cognac with glowing orange embers deep within.
They're everything you could ever want from a pair of Georgian paste earrings... They're elegant yet coveted, understated yet eye-catching.
A gorgeous addition to any jewellery box. As a gift or a well deserved treat!
ERA: Georgian (1714-1830)
MEASUREMENTS: The Topaz Pastes measure 9mm long x 7mm across x 4.5mm deep.
Weight: 1.2g each, or 2.3 combined.
MATERIALS: Yellow Gold tone settings (possibly pinchbeck?)with 9ct Yellow Gold posts and backs, Imperial Topaz Paste.
HALLMARKS: The earrings themselves are not hallmarked as they are Gold tone only. The butterfly backs are a more contemporary addition and are marked "375".
CONDITION: Very Good
These enchanting Georgian Paste earrings are in very good condition for their age, and are ready to wear and enjoy. The Pastes are beautiful and have the most beguiling colour, they are set securely and the foiled backs are intact so they are agleam with radiance and light! They would have originally had french hooks which have been replaced by modern 9ct Gold posts- making them comfortable and easy to wear. One of the Pastes has a scuff across the surface of the stone but luckily this is not very noticeable, and when worn would be practically invisible.
For a pair of earrings 200 years old we think they're pretty special!
