These sparkling earrings with starburst-faceted diamond paste stones (11mm) set over pink topaz-colored foils create a stunning look as the light dances across the starburst facets the color changes from clear to shades of pink, depending upon movement and light.

They were created with graceful silver shepherd’s crook earwires which go in from the front of the ear.

The stones are closed-back set into silver rounded backs, or bellies, typical of many Georgian pieces, with a double scribe line near the bezel, typical of the Georgian period, and the foils behind the stones are bright and clean.

These earrings measure 7/8” overall, are English, from the 1700’s.
