Georgian Black Dot Paste Earrings
A stunning pair of Georgian paste drop earrings set in silver with 14k gold wires. Clear paste stones are hand-faceted & foil-backed with a black dot applied at each base. This technique was used to create an illusion of an open cutlet at the bottom of the stone that was typically seen in diamonds of this era, a wonderful example of which is still present in this pair after more than 200 years. (SOLD ON MODA OPERANDI)
