|Voluptuous chandelier earrings c.1830 were high style in the Georgian era in England. They were light in weight and intricate in design. The elongated teardrop is known as a torpedo earring. Three stems, each minutely engraved with crosshatching, (enlarge the photo to see detail), converge and meet a floral ending with appliquéd flowers on each side. The tops are original. The ear wires, now comfortable, long shepherds hooks, were likely changed as they passed through time. Their length serves to prevent loss of the earring. The condition is gleaming and excellent.|
