- 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned Jewelry, Vintage EarringsThese 1920s drop earrings are fun and unusual but hard to describe. The pendant is a ball composed of a faceted, golden-topaz-glass disk sandwiched between two shiny, silver-tone domes. A golden-topaz glass stone sits at the ear lobe, and a small bead is at the center of the paper-clip chain. These all-original, long earrings have screw-backs, which can be modified for pierced ears. Wear them with off-duty and business-casual attire. Scroll down to see a bracelet and necklace to wear with these jewels.USD$295.00
- 1950s Jewelry, Louis Rousselet Jewelry, Vintage EarringsThese art glass earrings feature pale pink, green and blue beads that dangle on chains suspended from a pink glass button. The pastel-colored beads in different shapes and sizes have white striations. These 1950s ear clips are lovely and versatile, and have lots of movement. Though unsigned, they resemble pieces made by Louis Rousselet. The clues are the glass button at the earlobe and the beauty and uniqueness of the beads. I am not certain, however, because of the style of the ear clip. Nonetheless, these jewels are fun!USD$275.00USD$275.00
- 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned Jewelry, Vintage EarringsThese red bead earrings are deliciously long (3 1/4") and fun to wear. Three chains dotted with bright red glass form these Art Deco chandeliers. The glass stone set at the earlobe and all but the bottom row of beads are faceted; the bottom ones are round balls. These all-original earrings have screw-backs which can be modified for pierced ears. Some of the beads have minor flaws, but none is visible when this pair is worn. Lots of movement here! Make your fashion statement with this unusual pair.USD$295.00
- 1920s Jewelry, Unsigned Jewelry, Vintage EarringsThese Art Deco pendant earrings are wonderfully unusual. Each features a large, faceted, bi-color crystal bead. Its top is clear, and the bottom is a deep-sapphire-blue. A small crystal bead is at the center of the silver-tone links, and a silver-tone filigree knot is at the earlobe. These all-original, long (2 1/2″) earrings are dainty, yet full of life. The screw-backs can be modified for pierced ears. The screws are marked "sterling", but I don’t know if the rest of the findings are. Scroll down to see a selection of necklaces and bracelets to wear with these stylish jewels.USD$295.00
