Echoing the elegance of late Georgian times, these circa 1850 earrings, believed to be of Belgian origin, are a true vintage treasure. The long hanging design is masterfully crafted with silver atop 18K red gold, a testament to the period's craftsmanship. Adorned with 34 meticulously placed rose-cut diamonds, these earrings capture and reflect light with every movement. Their style precedes the Victorian era, offering a glimpse into the opulent fashion of the time.
