These emerald, diamanté and silver Art Deco earrings are as stunning and glamorous as they come! The focal point is a large faceted oval emerald-green-glass stone, which is accented by tiny diamanté. The open backs of the emerald stones allow the light to shine through. These all-original earrings have lever-backs for pierced ears. The metal may be sterling, but it is unmarked. These gorgeous earrings are probably European in origin and are from my personal collection. Post script: These beautiful earrings were bought by the fiancé of a bride-to-be to wear on their wedding day. How romantic is that?
Round and marquis-shaped aurora borealis (AB) diamanté reflect light and play with color in these 1950s pendant earrings by Christian Dior. Small turquoise glass beads form the perimeter in a complimentary shade of blue. The color you see in the diamanté centers is only the light dancing on the stones. These clip-back earrings are set in rhodium-plated base metal.
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.
Graduated melon-shaped emerald-green glass beads with green-glass spacers and rhinestone rondelles form this statement piece. It has substantial weight, is a stunning color and was made to be worn in a single long (30") strand. This necklace was recently professionally restrung without a clasp.
