These classy and long Art Deco pendant earrings feature a blue rhinestone rondelle (which I have never seen before!) sandwiched between a pair of faceted sapphire-blue-glass beads, capped at each end with decorated silver-tone metal and suspended from silver-tone chain. A small diamanté is designed to adorn each earlobe. These all-original screw-back earrings can be modified for pierced ears. The backs of the screws are marked sterling, but I don’t know if the rest of the silver findings are as well. These lovely earrings can be worn anywhere, anytime.

These sapphire-blue-glass Art Deco dangle earrings with silver chain create a lot of movement with their half-moon stones suspended on silver chains with a dangling stone in the middle.

These 1950s diamanté earrings are definitely "top-of-the-line Alice Caviness jewelry!" (Julia Carroll). They feature large octagonal clear rhinestones with clear crystal beads and diamanté-studded beads attached to a filigree disk. The position of the large stones and their faceting maximize the flash the earrings produce. They are so flashy though that they're difficult to photograph — the yellow that appears along the edges of some of the stones is only a reflection. The silver-tone settings have clip-backs, which, unfortunately, are too short to sustain the weight of the large bottom stone in each earring. A clever buyer could remove that stone and attach smaller stones and/or crystal beads to the filigree back, and make these earrings more wearable.
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.
