A superb pair of early 20th century pearl, paste and 14ct earrings feature a waterfall of freshwater pearls that flow from paste set flowers. One of the most compelling pairs we brought back from London, I absolutely adore the subtle design elements of the flowers that crown them; note the central forget-me-nots, framed in four leaf clovers that are themselves, studded in brilliant cut pastes! Not to mention the reverse… turn them over to discover 💗 shapes reverse work on each of the petals.
