These pretty faceted paste earrings probably started out life as buttons or cufflinks in the late 18th century. About 1800 they were converted to earrings. This was standard practice back in the day, jewelry was almost always re-made into something new.

The collets around the pastes are silver, and the ear wires and backs test at least 14K gold (probably English 15ct).

You'll note one of the earring's stones is browner than the other, that is typical for these closed back earrings. The set is priced accordingly.

3.1g total weight, no markings.
Head Diameter about 8mm
Carat Weight equivalency about .95 each
Total length about 5/8 of an inch.

Perfect for a bride, the SCA garb enthusiast, Jane Austen enthusiast or anyone who loves very old things!
