These earrings would be perfect for a Gothic bride's special day... they are uncommonly large for the period, and the little rose-cut diamonds sparkle in their silver settings.

The fronts are sterling silver, and the backs and wires are 9ct rose gold. They are continental European in origin. No markings.

They are either Georgian era (late 1700s to early 1800s), or Georgian revival (early 1900s). Their size and tulip settings suggest the latter era to me.

They weigh 11.3g total
They are 1.5 inches long overall, and the dangling flower has a diameter of just shy of 1 inch. The rosettes at the top are about 3/8 of an inch in diameter.

The stones do test as diamond, and there are 8 total in each earring. It's difficult to gauge carat weight of rose-cut diamonds, but they have the span of 2 to 4 point diamonds each. They catch the light wonderfully!

Please note this type of earring is to be carefully distinguished from modern Indian (India) "Polki" diamond jewelry. These are not Polki reproductions, they are the real thing, guaranteed.
