Art Deco Silver Gilt Crystal Drop Earrings with 18kt Wires
A stunning pair of crystal earrings from the late Art Deco (ca1930s) era! Crafted in gilded 800 silver, each earrings holds two sparkling crystal stones, giving the pieces a simple yet stunning design. Dangling freely at the base is a link that holds a beautiful prong set old European Cut crystal stone. A second sparkling crystal is set in a complimentary prong setting at the top, and rests below a polished modern 18kt yellow gold earring wire. Both crystals have an open back, intensifying their light-catching properties, and creating a radiant, brilliant sparkle! The wonderful pairing of the modern 18kt earring wires with the lovely gilded silver make the crystal stones come alive and they rival the appearance of real diamonds! These earrings are breathtaking in person, and would look exquisite worn everyday or on special occasions!
Measurement: Each earring hangs a little less than 1" long including the wire top and is slightly more than 1/4" at its widest point.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no serious damage to the gilded silver setting, 18kt gold wire, and all four crystals are intact. The modern earring wires are secure and in excellent working condition. There is some normal surface wear to the crystal stones, however, nothing that is noticeable when they are worn.
