These antique Georgian Paste earrings are simply spell-binding!
They are made from a combination of 18ct yellow Gold hooks and high quality closed back Silver settings, enclosing a precious 6.75ct Paste gemstone in each earring!!!
The setting itself is beautifully simple, with a typical Georgian crimped or "pie-crust" edge and a smooth rounded back.
Paste is a heavy, very transparent flint glass that simulates the fire and brilliance of Diamonds and other treasured gemstones. Because its fantastic sparkle paste jewellery even became more popular than Diamonds in some circles and continues to be highly sought after to this day.
These earrings are foiled behind the paste to create a dramatic sparkle that will catch your eye day or night, and would be perfect for those special occasions that you really want to shine. They're glamorous yet refined, flashy yet somehow understated, and altogether gorgeous!
Great for a wedding or christening.
