Sterling silver set with gemstone-colored glass stones in a crescent shape make these 1940s clip-back earrings by DeRosa very versatile. The colored stones are graduated in size and enhanced with an inner ring of diamanté. Moreover, the faux diamond, emerald, amethyst, ruby, emerald, sapphire and topaz form the word dearest, making these earrings acrostic (i.e., the initials of the stones form a word or name). This type of sentimental jewelry was very popular in the 19th century Victorian era, a style that inspired some 1940s jewelry designers. DeRosa pieces are always exceptionally well-made and hard to find.
These 1950s clip-back earrings with multiple shades and shapes of sapphire glass are another example of Schreiner's genius, even though they are unsigned.

Wear them with casual, office and evening attire to great acclaim!
