Very good (mild verdigris on one earring as shown in last photo)
These brass earrings feature chrysoprase, carnelian and onyx glass grapes beneath beautifully detailed leaves and flowers with onyx glass bead centers. Even the back of each earring is adorned with a large textured leaf. The decoration is wonderful, and the patina is warm. Although bunches of grapes were a common motif in early 20th century jewelry, I’ve never seen anything like these splendid, all-original screw-back earrings before. These earrings can be modified for pierced ears.
These gorgeous 1950s earrings have lapis art glass, pale blue and aurora borealis glass stones, and faux pearls. Notice the gold flecks in the lapis stones, which are present in genuine lapis lazuli. Though unsigned, these earrings feature the characteristics of Schreiner's work: high-quality art glass, elaborate settings, hook-and-eye construction and donut-hole clip-backs. These versatile earrings can be worn with casual, office and evening attire.
Schreiner pieces typically feature stunning art glass and imaginative color combinations, and these lavish 1950s earrings are no exception. A large citrine-colored art glass cabochon is surrounded by oval pale amethyst (lavender) and round citrine glass stones, with dangling pale sapphire and lavender crystal beads. The setting is silver-tone metal with clip-backs. What a lovely statement! You can wear these show-stopper earrings with the latest fashion trends as well as your perennial favorites and receive compliments every time. I have to say these are the most extraordinary earrings I've ever seen!
These 1950s clip-back earrings with pavé centers encircled in gold-plated scrolls by Elsa Schiaparelli are just right for a tailored yet elegant look for daytime or evening attire. You can wear them with gold and diamanté pieces created in the 1950s by Hattie Carnegie – scroll down to see a selection. Also a great option for a bridal, mother-of-the-bride or any special occasion. Postscript: a bride bought these earrings and a Hattie Carnegie cuff to compliment her wedding gown.
Pale sapphire and peridot glass stone surround an amazing center stone with straight-line striations -- known as porphyry glass -- in a Carnegie-favored leaf motif. The shades of blue and green, and the shapes of the stones make this brooch worthy of the maker's name. The setting is gold-plated metal with a roll-over safety clasp.
