Retro 14kt Crystal & Gold Nugget Earrings
A fun and unique pair of novelty earrings from the Retro (ca1940) period! These unusual earrings are made of 14kt yellow gold and have a simple, creative design. Each earring begins with a gold ball topper attached to a post. Dangling below is a circle-shaped link made of crystal, which is bezel set in a textured gold eyeglass setting. Sandwiched in between the crystal are small gold "nuggets", which are represented by bright gold flakes that appear suspended within the crystal as though floating. The gold nuggets are loose inside, allowing their distribution to change formation with regular movement and wear. These simple and charming earrings look lovely when worn, and would make a wonderful everyday addition to any collection!
Measurements: Each earring hangs 1" long and is approximately 1/8" thick at the thickest point. The circle link has a diameter of 9/16".
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the yellow gold setting or crystal. All of the gold nugget flakes inside are intact. The earring posts are secure and in good condition.
