Does any one know if this set of designs were actually completed -- that is were the earrings made?

We know that when the Arcots were finally sold they were set as earrings.
I have never seen anything about how Queen Charlotte wore these diamonds. Perhaps she had them set as earrings. Does any one know?
The British Library has this intriguing entry on its blog site. http://blogs.bl.uk/untoldlives/2012/06/queen-charlottes-arcot-diamonds.html
If the reference in the letter does refer to the Arcots, I wonder how the original gemstones were set? As a type of pendant?
