This glorious pair of earrings date from the mid-1700’s, and were created in gilt metal and set with round mother-of-pearl centers surrounded by a double halo of faceted garnets (also see pendant #25337) .

These earrings have kept their original back wires with wig ears!

They are quite unusual; we have never had another pair.

Each measures 1-1/4" in diameter.
