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.
silver, 10k gold (tests), 6mm old cut paste stones
