These luscious topaz-hued paste earrings date to the turn of the 19th century, or perhaps even a little earlier. The paste stones are backed in foil and set in dished silver settings. Originally, these earrings would have been buttons or collar studs, they've been converted into earrings with 9k gold ear wires.
silver, 10k gold ear wires, apricot-hued pastes
Very good - converted into earrings from buttons or collar studs at some point in time; slight rubbing along table facet edges
3/4" length measured from the top of the ear wire, 1/2" diameter
