A delicate pair of flat cut garnet drop earrings in 9ct gold. Dating to c.1820-1850 the main components of these earrings are antique, however we believe that the hooks may be a later addition, although in-keeping with the original Georgian aesthetic.
Each earring houses a mix of shapes, descending from round, to square, and then to oval. The garnets are set in closed back settings indicative of 1800s jewellery, and backed by bight foil that gives them a metallic glow from within, which is only enhanced as they move and catch the light. Offered in excellent antique condition.
