Hi All.. I bought a pair of Old Rose Cut Diamond earrings at auction.. I just love vintage jewellery.. There is no hallmarks .. I believe they are silver & gold with old rose cut centre diamonds with foil backs.. I have no clue as to there age .. Does any one have any idea of what era they could be?
Any help/ advice would be most gratefully appreciated. x f158de4d-2b93-4315-b7b8-abe600efbe96.jpg 27602a17-b987-4b46-92c8-abe600f13ba7.jpg f158de4d-2b93-4315-b7b8-abe600efbe96.jpg 27602a17-b987-4b46-92c8-abe600f13ba7.jpg

Very pretty.
I believe these are contemporary Polki diamond earrings, made in the east, perhaps in India or Bangladesh. They are not Georgian in my opinion.
Lovely! Enjoy!
+2. The construction and design is not what you would see with a Georgian piece.

Definitely look like polkis, but polki is usually set in high karat yellow gold, and usually with closed backs and decorative enamelling on the back, so I think the WG is an unusual choice, perhaps to make it look more westernised or perhaps they are old rose cuts and not polkis. I do like them though! They’re very pretty :D

Hi .. Thanks all for your replies.. Just had to google what polkis diamonds are... still non the wiser.. but see that polki diamond earrings are very very similar in style.. what is the difference between polkis diamonds are rose cut.. or are they two of the same?.. sorry a little clueless :oops:

Can we get a profile view of the earrings please? Polki are flat across the top, while rose cuts are domed.
