Diamond earrings 18th or 19th century,
A superb and wearable pair of gold Indian earrings, enamelled in vibrant red and green on their backs with Mughal-inspired floral motifs. There are foil-backed flat diamonds on their fronts.
Suspended from each is a ball in gold, each set with more than 20 further diamonds. Three pearls are suspended from each of these (it is possible, that a fourth pearl might have been suspended from the backs of the balls but no longer is present).
Pearls adorn the sides of the main body of each earring as well.
The earrings are fitted with gold ‘fish hooks’ for pierced ears.
