The Georgian period consisted of handcrafted jewelry with incredibly labor-intensive processes. The artisans had to hand hammer gold ingots and other metals into thin sheets before even starting to fabricate pieces.
Jewelers during the Georgian period often melted down what they considered out-of-date pieces in order to make newer pieces reflecting current trends, like this gorgeous pair, for instance.
This pair of earrings features beautifully-paired blue enamel and pearls and have about 1" in length.

Please view and inspect any photos closely. We endeavor to fully disclose all condition information clearly and concisely, however, please note that what qualifies as excellent condition for historical jewelry differs from modern and contemporary pieces; please take the age of the piece into account when examining the piece. Minor age wear is typical and to be expected for antique and vintage jewelry.
