Art Deco Sterling Gilt Onyx Teardrop Dangle Earrings
A gorgeous pair of onyx earrings from the Art Deco (ca1920) era! Crafted in gilded sterling silver, these fabulous earrings display a lovely dangling teardrop design. Freely hanging at the base is an elongated, smoothly polished onyx link that is held in an eye-catching conical-shaped cap at the top. The link swings beautifully from a complimentary onyx bead topper attached to simple wires at the top. The combination of the polished rich, black onyx next to the light-reflecting gilded yellow gold setting creates a fabulous combination. The earrings dangle with lovely movement and frame the face beautifully. A fantastic statement piece when worn, these earrings would make an perfect addition to any collection!
Measurements: Each earring hangs approximately 2 1/4" long (including the wires at the top) and measures about 3/8" wide and thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no serious damage to the gilded sterling silver setting or to any stones, except for a single tiny chip around the rivet at the base of one of the teardrop links; this is not noticeable when worn due to the size and location. The earring wires are secure and in good working condition.
