These beautiful ovaled ‘Queen Anne’ earrings, in a very desirable sapphire blue, are closed-back set in silver with dog/saw-tooth bezels over foils.

The earrings have graceful silver shepherd’s crook earwires which go in from the front of the ear.

Each stone measures 16mm x 20mm; the earrings measure 1-1/4“overall.

This important form has become so difficult to find!

English circa 1740’s
