Very vintage diamond earrings in the Georgian Girandole style. "Girandole" refers to the triple drop dangle motif which was utilized extensively throughout the late 17th to 18th centuries. These earrings are guaranteed to not be new reproductions, as they have been in my personal collection since 1995 and had already been around long enough to be converted from pierced earrings to screw backs (this was a popular thing to do from the 1920's through the 1960's when screw backs were a popular option) Since I am not certain of a circa date, they are listed under vintage instead of antique. The criteria for antique on Ruby Lane is 100 years old or greater. The earrings do appear to have been fabricated from parts as opposed to cast as a single piece. They feature rose cut diamonds with a couple of table cut diamonds. Table cut diamonds predate the rose cut. These were possibly replacements from old jewelers' stock. There is one small diamond which is actually a more modern cut mounted upside down to resemble a rose cut. The earrings measure just over 1 1/2" long by just over 3/4" wide. One diamond has a carbon spot (bottom center) They have a fabulous look, and look and would compliment a Georgian pendant perfectly!
