Cut steel jewelry came into fashion in the Georgian era and was made and popularly worn through the end of the 19th century. The jewelry is made from cast steel beads which were faceted by hand in the earlier iterations of the style, and then produced by machine in the later years. Once cut, the sparkly studs were either riveted to a brass or steel plate to produce high-wattage, glittery jewelry. These late Georgian cut steel earrings feature floral clusters with pear-shaped drops.
