|Superb quality earrings designed with the flourish of garlands, have been made of foiled pastes in the manner and fine execution of Georgian and Victorian earrings. From the tiny pastes to the large teardrops, all stones were cut and polished then set like gemstones. No time was spared in the design of the silver which is rounded, pillow like and smooth. The brilliant pastes are the rare pink color that flatters all women. Paste this fine was an art form in earlier eras. The jeweler who made this pair of chandelier ear drops, knew jewelry history and had the desire to create and did create the same quality of hand work and stone setting that challenged jewelers at the beginning of the 19th century. Superb hand work was in line with the turn of the century. Think of the Art Nouveau movement which ran concurrently to the Edwardian esthetic. It was a movement that valued the hand's on art of the individual over machine made jewelry. Superb Condition.|
