Founded by a potter Josiah Wedgwood in England in 1759, Wedgwood is credited for the invention of jasperware: a variety of unglazed, vitreous fine stoneware. Wedgwood is beloved for its famous colors of jasperware: pastels (and more rarely, dark tones) with accents of white, typically depicting mythological figures and scenes. Wedgwood fine jewelry is an interesting branch of this company’s designs. These earrings feature a central round shaped piece of pink and white jasper (rare to find in Wedgwood jewelry!) depicting a Grecian female figure leaning over a column. The earrings are bezel set in silver, which has been plated in yellow gold. The back of the earrings feature additional hallmarks: a maker’s mark JW (Josiah Wedgwood,) an anchor (indicating it was assayed in Birmingham, England,) a lion passant facing left (which indicates silver metal,) the letter N (which indicates manufacture in the year 1962.) The earrings have a post style setting and come with gold-filled friction backs.
