Retro Sterling & Moonstone Hand Wrought Earrings
A wonderful pair of hand wrought moonstone earrings from the Retro (ca1940) era! Made of sterling silver, each earring has a beautiful and artistic design. A large square-shaped link hangs from a round surmount, both displaying a raised bead and wirework design. Resting in the center of each link is an alluring moonstone cabochon in a bezel setting. The moonstones are very clear and iridescent, exhibiting striking blue flashes in the light. Surrounding the moonstones is a cutout pattern of swirls and teardrop shapes that frame the center stone perfectly. A darkened patina on the surface of the silver adds further depth to the textured design. The earrings hang from posts at the top and are stamped "STERLING" on the back. The earrings are wonderfully lightweight and have a marvelous look that would be perfect for day or night!
Measurements: The earrings hang approximately 1 3/4" long, measure 3/4" wide, and are 3/4" at their thickest point. The overall weight of both earrings is 19.3 grams.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling setting or posts, and both of the moonstone cabochons are intact.
