GEORGIAN Rare 12.00 Carat Diamond Antique Pendeloque Earrings

£25,000.00

The ‘pendeloque’ earring, developed around the 1770s, is composed of a round or oval-shaped top suspending a matching larger drop surmounted by a delicate bow. This popular type of earring was longer and lighter than the ‘girandole’ motif, which rendered it more complimentary to the fashionably high coiffures and extravagant wigs worn during the latter half of the century.

Product Description

The ‘pendeloque’ earring, developed around the 1770s, is composed of a round or oval-shaped top suspending a matching larger drop surmounted by a delicate bow. This popular type of earring was longer and lighter than the ‘girandole’ motif, which rendered it more complimentary to the fashionably high coiffures and extravagant wigs worn during the latter half of the century.

These stunning pair of authentic Georgian pendeloque earrings are a spectacular wearable piece of art. Hardly found in the market of this type, they really express the fashion in vogue during the last quarter of the 18th century in the wealthy society.
