Antique earrings are always on a woman's wish list. This pair is 18th century , long dramatic , and completely original. It has the pendelogue, three section design which was popular in the 18th century. The top section is especially beautiful as it is a stylized flower pot,or giardinetti. The center section, a bow was a favored, feminine motif and serves as a connecting link to the graduated elongated oval drops. . Each section is perfectly proportioned and graceful. The faceted white paste stones are foil backed and set in hand crimped silver collets The reverse has the original back to front wires.

They measure 3 1/2 inches from the top X 3/4 inches across the bow. They are especially beautiful and bright in the evening light. For a similar example refer to Ginny Dawes book , Georgian Jewelry pg. 98.
