    Red & Black Galalith German Machine Age Earrings by Jakob Bengel

    , ,

    These Jakob Bengel earrings feature raised black Galalith triangles with red Galalith slots. The chrome setting envelopes the stones. A stack of chrome disks completes the design. I purchased these earrings from a Bengel expert in the UK. They came with their unmarked lever-backs for pierced ears, so I am unaware of the metal content. If you require sterling silver, a competent jeweler could switch the ear wires. Scroll down to see Jakob Bengel pieces that work beautifully with these earrings.
