Fantastic Rare Georgian Enamel Gold & Seed Pearl Chandelier Etruscan Wedding Earrings
These are absolutely amazing! WOW! Fantastic works of art and some of the most delicate craftsmanship I have ever seen. Worthy of being in a museums display. For you serious collectors of unique earrings these are ones to highly consider. Dating to the Georgian period, early Victoriana. Composed of super fine 18k gold wire work. Some resemble small orbs and leaves. Adorned with seed pearls that are attached with blonde horse hair. The center of the panels have flowers that are finished off with green enamel work. From the top of the ear hook to the bottom drop is 2 3/4 inches. At their widest point they are 5/8 of an inch. Certainly created by a masters hand! They are missing seed pearls to both the front and back. Enamel loss to the flowers as well as loss to some of the gold wire cage work. There is an indented drop adornment and some indentation to the bodies as well. These should be handled by the ear hook. Most early weddings earrings were done on a pierced mother of pearl base. Ones of gold construction are very rare! These must have originally belonged to a lady of high social standing. One of a kind wedding earrings that would make a welcomed addition to your advanced collection. Please examine photos closely and ask all questions prior to placing an order! Thanks!
