These magnificent ear pendants were hand-fabricated during the Georgian Era (circa 1714-1837).

Rose cut diamonds and natural pearls are set in silver-topped gold that has been pierced, cut, filed and polished by hand.   Both bezels were cut specifically to accommodate their uniquely-shaped baroque pearls.  The dangling pearls are set in four-prong baskets that were also completely hand-fabricated.  The engraved details throughout the entire pair of earrings were also...you guessed it...done by hand!

The earrings have two points of articulation, allowing for movement.  They are fastened by back-to-front wire hook closures, typical of the Georgian Era.  Please Note:  There is minor evidence of repair using lead solder.

The earrings are set with four (4) natural baroque twinned pearls.  The pearls are natural, not cultured.  They are white/silver, and display various colored overtones, such as green and rosé.  When pearls display more than 1 color overtone, it is known as orient, which is highly desirable.

The earrings are also set with a total of seventy-six (76) crudely cut and polished, antique rose cut diamonds.  They total approximately 1/2 carat.

Overall measurements of the earrings are 2.75" from top to bottom.

Gross weight of the earrings is 17.5 grams.
