These fabulous Antique Cut Steel Earrings started life as a pair of buttons and we have carefully had them converted to make a pair of earrings. The earrings have beautiful facets with 8 tassel drops and the earrings hang on Sterling silver ear wires.

Cut steel jewellery was at the height of fashion from the mid 1700s well into the 19th century. This glittering jewellery innovation originated in the 1700s. To make cut steel, melted horseshoe nails were formed into tiny faceted beads. Those small steel gemstone-like studs were then riveted one-by-one onto a base plate.

These earrings are a rare find which would make a lovely gift for any antique jewellery lover or a great addition to any collection.
