M.C. MOSSALONE Retro 14kt Yellow Gold Dangle Clip-On Earrings 13.2dwt
A fabulous pair of dangling earrings from the Retro (ca1940) era by M.C. MOSSALONE! Crafted in rich 14kt yellow gold, these bold earrings display a unique 3-dimensional geometric design, beautifully reminiscent of the Retro era. The surmount features a fantastic gatelink style motif created by 4 domed links that rest in a diamond shaped pattern. Swinging from the base are a trio of elongated links that subtly curve upward at each tip. The links have a rounded shape, and the center link hangs slightly lower than the rest, creating a wonderful cutout below the surmount. The surface of each displays a smoothly polished finish that reflects the light beautifully with every turn, providing a fantastic eye-catching appeal. Despite their substantial look, the earrings are hollow and lightweight, making them comfortable for everyday wear. Resting at the back of the surmount is a secure hinged clip, allowing for these earrings to be worn on either unpierced or pierced ears, however they can easily be converted to posts, if desired. Stamped on the back of the hinged clip is the signature "MC MOSSALONE" hallmark, along with a "14K" gold purity mark. The earrings swing with lovely movement and frame the face beautifully, making a fantastic and bold statement that would be perfect worn day or night!
Measurements: Each earring hangs approximately 2 1/8" long, measures about 3/4" wide, and is 1/4" thick. The overall pennyweight of both earrings is 13.2dwt (20.4 grams).
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the yellow setting. The hinged clips are secure and in good working condition.
