Designed to delight, a charming pair of antique floral beauties set with uniquely lovely hand cut Pastes. Set by hand in the cut down style in fine Silver, each of the glittery Paste gems is faceted in the 18th century fashion and retains all the individual qualities one sees in old hand cut Diamonds. Really quite splendid, and you'll never see another pair quite the same!
A conversion in our workshop, we are not sure of the exact age of these. We converted them to earrings by the addition of 9ct yellow Gold fittings, from a (haphazardly done) antique brooch conversion, these were popular in the 1880's, and so it is likely from all that we can see that they were a component of an older Georgian jewel.
Measuring 2.5cm from the top of the earwire, the flowers each measure 16mm across.
