These French, large white paste earrings are outstanding in their size and radiance. I have not had a pair like these for several years. They beautifully replicate diamond earrings of the period, utilizing 18 karat gold and silver. The bottom stone equates to over 2 carats and the top about 6 pts.
The stone is the desirable cushion cut, and it is closed in the back, not with foil, but 18 karat gold. This gives the stone extra brilliance and it is almost impossible to detect these are not real stones.
They measure 5/8ths inches long X 3/8ths inches across the bottom stone. They open and close securely with lever backs. I search for these on every
trip to Paris. These are exceptionally well made and in excellent condition.
