Circa 1875, a single and nonetheless very beautiful Ceylonese 'Matara Diamond' earring fashioned in Silver. Once part of a pair of traditional earrings, we hope we will be able to find a suitable home for this lonely jewel. An unusual find, and one which took us a while to place we were curious to trace its origins and we found our guide in Michael Backman a specialist in Asian antiquities and quote here from his website which shows similar items...
'Ceylonese silversmiths and other craftsmen produced items with Dutch influence during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries...'
Hand crafted and set with hand faceted rose-cut Jargoons also known as 'Matara Diamonds' (the old name for Zircons fine enough to be cut as gems which were sourced near the seaport of Matara) in a flowered arrangement of Silver. The gemstones would have been indigenous to the island. It measures 1cm across.
