Vintage Peruzzi Style Dramatic Sterling Wirework + Beaded Dangle Earrings
A gorgeous and dramatic pair of Vintage earrings, very similar in style to the work of Italian designer Peruzzi! Each sterling silver earring features a long, ornate wirework and bead design which hangs from a large half-orb topper attached to a simple earring post. Hanging below the topper is a crisscrossed wirework link that dangles two delicate beads on either side, and a wide, teardrop shaped link below. Swinging freely in the middle of the open center link is a large bead, while five graduated strands featuring ornate beads and links hang from the base. The intricate details throughout the earrings are stunning, including various carved and etched accents, and smaller, more delicate beads at the base of the larger beads. The contrast between the smoothly polished surfaces and the darkened patina on the embellishments is simply stunning and adds wonderful dimension to the dramatic design. When worn, the earrings make a fabulous statement piece, perfect day or night!
Measurement: Each earring hangs approximately 4" long, measures 1 1/4" wide, are is slightly more than 1/4" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the earrings is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage the sterling silver setting. The earring post and back are secure and in good working order.
