Antique Georgian torpedo pendant earrings. 18k gold, pink sapphire, natural pearls. Probably made in England, circa 1790 - 1820's.

Measurements:2 1/2 inches long (6.5cm). Weigh 8 grams.

Long, torpedo pendant shapes. Two sections - an upper surmount suspending the long drop. Day Night or Top Drop: The pendants easily removed so that the surmounts can be worn alone by day when a simpler look is called for. Surmounts in the form of Cannetille openwork flowers. Delicate filigree and granulation with a central gold globe and exquisitely minute multiple link chain outer border. The torpedo-shaped drops with pointed apex joined via loops to the wires of the surmount. Around the terminals is a wire work open flower. The gold cones, rounded at the bottom show the Marvelous rich gold off to best. effect. Near the bottom, they are embellished with gold Cannetille wire work, natural pearls and very bright pink topaz. Although the topaz are closed at the back, there is enough showing above the mount to indicate that They are actually this color and not the result of typical Georgian foiling. The bottom edge is adorned with another wire work flower and small gold globe. The quality of workmanship of These earrings is superb. The bright colors and delicate detail are exceptional. They wonderfully balance the sturdy solidity of the unembelished, with the intricate detail of the extremities for an exquisite look.

Marks: like all Georgian Jewelry, there are no gold marks, but acid testing stays for 18k gold.

Condition: These earrings are in remarkably good condition considering Their age. Negligible wear commensurate with age. Certificate from appraiser available to view/to new owner.
