These wonderful earrings are Georgian or early Victorian. They have deep purple foiled paste stones. There is a large teardrop with 3 small round pastes at the bottom. Lots of drama with these. The ear-wires tested for 10K gold. The ear-wires are not original, added sometime in the last 50 years. The ear-wires tested for 10K gold. The backs are closed. The earrings measure 1 1/8" X 1/2". Weight is 3.1 grams each. Condition is very good for age. These a rare find. I would date them at c 1830's-60's.
