This is a gorgeous pair of antique late Georgian or early Victorian HAND MADE gold and silver paste earrings. The hooks/findings test strongly for 10K YELLOW GOLD and lightly for 14K. Most likely they would melt at 12K yellow gold. They also have hand applied sterling silver bezels. The paste stones are original and still quite sparkly. Each earring is made with a hand riveted hinge. There are several photos so you can see the various positions. They are extremely well made with precision and beautifully made with fine detail. The sterling silver bezels are the tall full bezels that you only find on Georgian and earlier jewelry. They also have over 150 years of patina on them and they have not been cleaned. Condition excellent, very well taken care of over the years. From an estate where where they were well cared for and properly maintained for generations. Size is 3/4" from the top of the hook to the bottom by 5/16" across. This is a gorgeous, EARLY, RARE FIND for any collection or display of early antique Georgian and Victorian jewelry.
