The stunning, stepped table-cut octagonal Stuart crystals are closed-back set over a rosy foil, a love token, fine scrolled gold cyphers and surround, all visible under the crystals.

There are gold hinged backwires with stops/wig ears, which go from the back of the ear to the front.

The Asscher-type cut crystals with squared off corners, measures 10 x 10 mm, and are clean and bright.

Including the earwires, the earrings measure 3/4” overall.

Stuart crystal jewelry is commemorative of Charles I of England who died in 1649.

This type of crystal work was created in England during the 1600’s in wonderful Stuart memento mori pieces.
