These glorious long antique earrings hail from the Georgian era and were hand crafted around 1820. They are made in 18 karat buttery yellow gold and set with fabulous black jet. The rich tone of the gold and the lustrous black of the jet create the most wonderful effect. They look absolutely breathtaking on..... and if that was not enough of the fabulousness in itself, they separate and can be worn as day and night earrings!!! The daisy shaped tops are gorgeous and graceful worn for a daytime, short look . However, when they are worn with the dangle drops they transform - and you are ready for a ball - or a red carpet affair in an instant ! No one would even notice what dress you are wearing ( sorry !! :) They make you look and feel like a queen - and we are not joking ! The buttery, gold richness accentuates and elevates the jet and just lights up your face and the shape of the design magically lengthens your neck .....Aren't they just to die for?!! And who was the Georgian master jeweller responsible for this utter gorgeousness ?? !
They are a superb, large size, 2.3 inches long... look, nearly the length on my fingers!! The daisy tops are 0.54 inches in diameter. The drops are 0.9 inches wide. They weigh a very comfortable 12.2 grams together and are beautifully articulated, the centre sections in the drops too ! They are in wonderful antique condition and all the jet stones are original apart from one, replaced some time ago with a matching old jet stone of the same cut, hence the replacement is not noticeable at all.
We love ..... and absolutely adore the works of art that these earrings are. Made to flatter and enhance your beauty, so feminine and yet so strong for the gorgeous woman you are. We love, love, love them so.....
