These glorious, beautifully-faceted, foiled, dogtooth-mounted Georgian ruby paste earrings create a stunning look when the starburst cuts reflect light as the wearer moves. They have graceful, gold, shepherd’s crook earwires, which go into the front of the ear, and rounded silver backs or bellies that are characteristic of this era.

The starburst-faceted stones are large (12mm, 12.5mm in setting), closed-back, and bezel-set in dogtooth/sawtooth mountings.

These amazing earrings measure 1 ¼” overall.

English, ca. 1790.
