The lovely and timeless 1920s Art Deco pendant earrings feature a faceted spring-green glass briolette topped with a green glass stone mounted in silver-tone metal. A small green-glass bead is sits at the center of the paper-clip chain. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler.
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.
Large faceted ruby glass teardrops with diamanté caps are suspended from two faux pearls in these lovely and elegant 1950s earrings by Hattie Carnegie. The setting is gold-tone with clip-backs. These earrings can go from day to evening wear with ease!
Faceted peridot-glass stones capped with silver-tone metal filigree are the focal point in these delicate 1920s Art Deco earrings, with peridot-glass beads and silver-tone filigree disks accents. Peridot is a hard-to-find color. The original screw-backs were converted to sterling silver lever-backs for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These earrings are long and lovely!
These earrings are quintessential Art Deco! Round glass beads the color of pale jade suspended from silver-tone chains hold a circle of beads at the bottom. A single jade-glass bead pendant hangs within each circle, and a matching larger disk is set where it will adorn the earlobe. These lavishly-long (3-inch) earrings are possibly Czech in origin. These all-original screw-back earrings can be modified for pierced ears.
