What could be lovelier than a pair of Georgian period, pale, golden topaz earrings with that illusive hint of pink? The color of topaz has always been chosen to grace the most beautiful jewels, and the Georgian period was no exception. Many of these stones came by way of Brazil, where precious stones such as topaz and chrysoberyl were mined.
These topaz earrings were foil back, enhancing their radiance and contributing to the beautiful peach colored hue. They are 15 karat gold and are set in hand crimped rub over collets. Most likely part of an elaborate reviere and were beautifully transformed to earrings with 9 karat gold shepherd hooks.
They measure 1 inch in length from the top wire X 3/8 across. Excellent condition and beautiful. England, circa 1800
