They were her sister’s earrings until she borrowed them for a wedding last summer. She conveniently forgot to give them back over the holidays; and she just happened to forget her own earrings for the New Year’s Eve party. Thank goodness her sister said she could borrow them for one more night, which might accidentally have turned into another two months. She secretly hopes her sister forgets all about them. She’d like to wear them all the time. She likes the way they glitter, how they go with all her favorite things.
These antique Georgian flat cut diamond earrings were handcrafted in England around 1830. There are 24 rose cut diamonds decorating these leaf-shaped drop earrings. They have been acid tested, the hooks are 18 karat gold while the backs are 15 karat gold. They bear no marks. Each earring measures 33 x 15.3 mm and together they weigh 5.4 grams.
Please note that while the majority of these earrings are Georgian, they may not have started life out as earrings. It seems to me that at some point they may have been made from an old Georgian piece of jewelry, so the connection points and ear wires are probably not original while the diamond parts are. It seems that this was done some time ago and the resultant earrings are extremely lovely. It may also be that they were always earrings but were re-wired at some point as the wires often did get bent and broken.
Morning, noon, and night, a pair of earrings like these need to see all hours of the day. And you have just the ears to do it!
