Late Georgian Garnet Flower Drop Earrings

Late Georgian Garnet Flower Drop Earrings

C.1830. A pair of late Georgian/Early Victorian garnet flower drop earrings. Each earring is designed in a forget-me-not flower motif at the top, while the leaves are suspended from the flower. As love tokens, the earrings carry a symbolic message of ‘Thinking of You’. Beautifully flat-cut almandine garnets illuminate well due to their foiled backs. With light, they glow with a deep red wine hue. The earrings are set in 15k rose gold, with new 15k gold ear wires. English in origin. A small minor nick on the bottom drop in one earring. Overall in good condition. 

Total Drop: Approximately 1.25" (including front wire)
Width: Approximately 3/8” (flower) & 1/2” (leaf)
