18th Century Cobalt Blue Paste Cluster Earrings

$2,300

Made around 1750, in silver and 10k gold, these wildly blue cluster earrings have Queen Anne style back-to-front ear wires with wig hooks. You'd pin the little loops to your massive powdered wig to keep the earrings from falling forward or pulling on your earlobes. Probably French, crazy colorful.
