These rare Georgian earrings are very special indeed. In fact we've never seen a pair like them, so they are well and truly a one-of-a-kind find!
Stunning blue Zircon gemstones shine out from within a halo of antique white paste, all set within an intriguing setting of unmarked Sterling Silver.
Why intriguing you say?! Well, the earrings feature typical Georgian closed back settings to the paste gemstones, whilst the Zircon's have typically more Victorian settings which are open-backed, allowing the light to flood in for maximum brilliance.
These earrings are an incredibly rare specimen, bridging the gap between the Georgian and Victorian eras.
We have added a pair of robust Sterling Silver butterfly backs so you can wear them with absolute confidence.
Watch them sparkle and shine by day, or twinkle by candle-light!
ERA: Georgian (1714-1837)
MEASUREMENTS: The earrings are approximately 19mm diameter, with the central Zircons each measuring 8mm. The earrings alone without the backs weigh 7.6g.
Total weight: 8.5g
MATERIALS: Sterling Silver, Zircon, White Paste.
HALLMARKS: As with all Georgian items there are no hallmarks present one but they have been tested as Sterling Silver.
These rare antique earrings are simply sublime! The antique Silver settings are in good condition with all of the gemstones held firmly in place. One of the earring posts has been slightly bent out of shape over the years but this can easily be forgiven!
The Zircons are lovely and clear with no cracks or chips. There are some tiny nicks and abrasions commensurate with age, mostly to the table facet, and we recommend you use the zoom facility to ensure you are happy with this prior to purchase. The gems could easily be polished but we prefer to leave these wonderful artifacts as found. The Silver has a beautiful aged patina which we know and love so well and as all of our earrings they have been professionally sterilized so they are ready to wear and enjoy!.
