These beautiful antique dangle earrings are expertly hand crafted, c. 1820s-1840s, and are in very fine condition. The large round disc dangles from the shepherd’s hook piece that has a smaller round disc.

The cut steel jewelry process dates back to at least the sixteenth century and became the height of fashion in the eighteenth (Georgian) and nineteenth centuries (Victorian). The polished silvery-gray jewelry was made to imitate the glitter of diamonds and sparkle in candlelight.

Cut steel jewelry is very collectible. Most was made in England. The process of hand cutting and polishing each steel bead, then riveting it onto a back piece was extremely laborious and time-consuming.
In general, the smaller the studs and size and closeness of the rivets, as seen on the back, the finer and older the piece, which make me feel these earrings could possibly date to Late Georgian times, but certainly early Victorian times.

Size: 2” long by 1 3/8 wide (larger disc)

Condition: Fine condition, no repairs, original condition with a lovely bit of sparkle. Care should be taken to keep the earrings dry, as cut steel jewelry is susceptible to rust which is why jewelry in good condition is more difficult to find today.
