Stunning mid-18th century flat-cut garnet paste earrings in a sunburst design.

The 26 flat-cut almandine garnet pastes have a single facet at the girdle and foil back creating a beautiful color in every stone. The reverse shows the typical pillow back setting typical of this period.

The original mounting is gilded metal. These earrings have kept their original back wires with stops and wig-ears! 

They are very wearable and the earwires click with a good sound.   It has pleasing sunburst design with a halo surround which accents the inner round central stone.

The earrings measure one inch overall from the top of the wig-ear stops, 7/8” in diameter. They are in very good condition for their 270+-year history.

England, circa 1750. (Though Queen Anne reigned from 1702 – 1714, the style of jewelry created after her passing was noted as ‘Queen Anne.’)
