Description : Stunning looking set from the late Georgian era when gold was scarce and a little gold was made to go a long way. Cannetille jewelry is composed of filigree twisting gold wire and golden globes, forming an exquisite lacework of pyramidal and flower forms. Scrolling gold is quite 3-dimentional. Elongated pear-shaped earrings and diamond-shaped brooch. Each beautifully made jewel is set with pink-foiled rock crystal. Brooch-pendant with c-clasp to catch the pin and a loop that will accommodate a fairly large chain. Earrings have long wires, which are easy to insert and comfortable to wear. Like most earrings from this era, it is possible that the wires are replacements. <P><P>
Exquisite workmanship and as wearable today as they were 200 years ago. <P><P>
Marks and Metal: No marks as to be expected of jewelry from this era. Gold was acid-tested to ensure metal purity. <P><P>
Condition: Good with minor wear commensurate with age. Please see enlarged pictures and don't hesitate to ask questions which we will do our best to answer.
