Aquamarine Floral Earrings by Pennino Bros.
1 1/4" diameter
c.1947 (see description)
"STERLING PENNINO PAT. PEND"
See Brunialti, Vol. 2, pp.7-8, for "Sunburst" brooches and "Bulrush" set
These aquamarine earrings were made by Pennino Bros. in the 1940s. The curled, flirty flower petals in gold-washed metal are the same shape and finish this maker used in a series of 1947 brooches called Sunburst. The glass stone settings are the same as their Bulrush brooch and earrings set from the same year. Both were made in vermeil sterling. According to Brunialti, the patent pending mark on these earrings refers to the clip mechanism, as these designs were not patented. Because the sterling mark is on the ear clip only, I can’t say for sure that this pair is sterling silver. These details are just for background – all Pennino jewels are divine! And by facing each other, these earrings frame your face to perfection. Please note that bright spots are merely lighting reflections.
