Georgian Swiss Enamel Portrait Earrings

I consider myself a ‘fine’ jewelry dealer and as such I tend to stick pretty tightly to my rule of only purchasing jewelry made from precious metals. However, every once in a while a piece comes along which provides a wonderful exception to the rule. These fantastic Swiss enamel earrings are the perfect example. The beauty and craftsmanship of these richly worked earrings puts the ‘fine’ back into them, despite them being made only in pinchbeck.

These exquisitely done earrings were hand crafted in Switzerland around 1830. They are decorated with frames of black and white and each features a lovely lady, in fact I rather think that they both feature the same lovely lady, one of her dressed in a traditional outfit for Daytime and the other one of her dressed up for Nighttime, in a sense they are ‘night and day’ earrings. Lovely and long, these earrings measure 65.9 mm north to south and 22.6 mm across, together they weigh 10.1 grams. They bear no marks and have been acid tested.

I offer a 3-5 payment layaway on most items purchased for full retail price, please inquire if you are interested in setting up a layaway. Items ship when payment is complete and items purchased or payments made on layaway are eligible for store credit only.

I always want you to be happy with every aspect of your purchase. If you are not completely satisfied for any reason simply let me know and we'll work together to get the item returned for a full refund. I guarantee that my pictures and descriptions are as accurate as possible. My goal is to exceed your best expectations!
