N639A An attractive and very wearable pair of salt-water pearl and rose-cut diamond earrings in 18th century style set in silver, with gold ear-wires. The pearls are approximately 9 mm diameter, and the earrings, excluding the ear-wires, 1 1/2 inches: 4 cms drop.
Without expensively testing the pearls. I cannot say whether they are natural. Cultured pearls did not come onto the market until the 1920s. If cultured, these earrings are later in date than they appear. If natural, they would be very much more expensive than they are. They come in a rather shabby old earring case which may or may not be original, but is quite characterful.
