A fabulous pair of hoop earrings by famed maker Paloma Picasso for Tiffany & Co.! Crafted in Italy in 1988, these handcrafted sterling silver earrings form the shape of a wide, graduated hoop that gently contours around the earlobe. The pair displays an intriguing hammered finish, making a unique statement. The hoops are concave, making them light and easy to wear while maintaining their bold appeal! An 18kt yellow gold post and hinged omega backing "marked "ITALY" secure the pair to the wearer's ear, and they are signed with a hand-engraved "T&C STERLING PALOMA PICASSO © 1988" atop a sterling silver disc. A golden disc stamped with "750" rests to the right of the signatures, noted for the earring posts. A fantastic pair of earrings for a Paloma Picasso collector, these would be a wonderful addition to a Tiffany & Co. collection!
Measurements: The earrings measure slightly more than 1 1/4" tall, 1 3/8" at their widest point, and an overall 5/16" deep.
Condition: The earrings are in excellent condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the silver setting. The yellow gold earring posts and sterling silver hinged backings are secure and in good working condition.
