GEORGIAN BOXED LONG PASTE EARRINGS CIRCA 1800
These are truly magnificent, a genuine pair of Sterling Silver Georgian Paste earrings which are complete in their original box.
Due to its age, Georgian jewellery is quite rare, with some pieces almost three hundred years old. From 1714 until 1837 four King Georges and a short-lived William gave rise to this extended period, spanning many fashions that are reflected in these stunning pieces of Georgian jewellery.
A lovely cluster of Paste Stones adorn the Sterling Silver top gallery leading to three lovely Paste droppers.
Paste is a heavy, very transparent flint glass that simulates the fire and brilliance of gemstones. They sparkle just like Diamonds, captivating the allure of natures beauty.
Originally these would of had hook wires, and have been converted to a butterfly and post during the Victorian era to secure them more in the ear.
We can convert them back if preferred, please email us about this option.
To find a Georgian pair of earrings in their original box too is an extremely rare find.
Purchased in London and steeped in English history.
Look fabulous when worn, very eye catching.
Weigh 17.6 grams together.
