Truly magnificent the way in which this pair of Georgian earrings from around 1820 emits an angelic white luster of light through the two grand pear shaped rose cut diamonds and the 20 smaller ones. As three diamond buds each with two petals dangle their way down from the stud to the pear, the foil-setting of every rose diamond intensifies the jewel's glistening even more with every movement. You don't just sit quiet and be pretty with these earrings: they need to swing and shake, they want you to enjoy and shine.
