Amazing rock crystal earrings with grand sparkle!! A wonderful pair of French silver and gold earrings, closed-back set with a foiled teardrop faceted rock crystal quartz stone, surrounded by a double halo of alternating sized cushion cut rock crystal stones, to create a glorious cluster. The silver verso has a rounded belly, which is typical in this period.

The overall measurement of the cluster top to bottom is 20mm, 18mm side to side, with the overall measurement ⅞”. These have hinged gold backwires, which go into the back of the ear.

They are offered with antique glass pearl drops, which may be slipped onto the backwires, making the overall length 1 ⅜”. These French earrings sparkle like diamonds, depending upon movement and the play of light-–as these were created when they would be viewed by candlelight. This day/night type of earring is also occasionally called tops/drops, or convertibles. Stunning sparkles by candlelight from these treasures.
