The style dates to late 18th century and was very popular during the Georgian era defined as the period between 1714 and 1837. The jewelry of this time has an opulent and regal flair. Fine jewelry was worn almost exclusively by the wealthy. This style of earring has two round or oval sections with the second section often detachable from the first. They are often referred to as ‘day to night’ earrings when the bottom is detachable.
