These beautiful earrings are Georgian, set with mellow colored faceted topaz. Topaz, a precious stone, was very rare and reserved for the finest of jewels. This oval, faceted topaz is set in 15 karat gold foil back, hand crimped bezels. The use of foil during this period of time was commonly used, as stones were closed back and the foil was a clever way to add brilliance and a distinctive hue.

These earrings were once part of a reviere, and now with the addition of 14 karat gold wires are charming,wearable earrings. They measure 1 inch long X 3/8th across the stone. The topaz measure 5/8 inches long X 3/8ths across. These are lovely for every day wear as the color blends with almost any period of jewelry. Condition is excellent.

England, circa 1820
