These beautiful pendant earrings date from the Georgian Period . ...... English, circa 1820, and executed by hand in mountings of unmarked acid tested silver and gold with thirty-two rose-cut diamonds and two rubies in each earring.
All stones are collet-set in silver and closed -backed, correct construction and materials for the Period . ...... Rose-cuts by nature are irregular in size and none of these stones have been removed so it is difficult to come up with an exact carat weight, but suffice it to say each earring contains a total diamond weight of more than two carats each. ....... The diamonds range in size from the smallest at approximately two points , and the largest in the drops surrounding the ruby at the bottom , measure about ten points each . ...... The cushion shaped rubies in the surmounts measure approximately twenty points each, about a fifth of a carat, and the rubies in the drops measure about forty-five points each, nearly a half carat . All stones appear original and none are missing. Small gold findings connect the drops to the surmounts , and the wires ( newer replacements ) are 14K gold. ...... Like the diamonds , the rubies are old -cuts and show age appropriate wear.
