Lapis Bead Czech Drop Earrings
1 5/8" x 1/2"
"Czechoslovakia" on original screw-backs
These lapis drop earrings have a pair of glass beads, each capped with flower-petal-shaped metal. The lower bead is 1/2-inch in diameter. The size and color make these pendants a bit bolder in effect than Art Deco pieces from the 1920s. The original screw-backs were replaced with sterling silver posts for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. Scroll down to see a selection of Art Deco jewels to wear with these earrings. Perfect for those who like to wear cool colors.
