Reference

Utility patent # 2,583,988 (for earring clasp) issued to Frederick A. Ballou, Jr. & Rogers T. Stafford in 1952 (application filed in 1949)

These 1950s ear clips by Elsa Schiaparelli feature multiple stones in a gold-tone setting. At the top, a large, faceted, round golden-topaz glass stone is positioned to adorn your earlobe. This stone is linked to a smaller, faceted, round brown-topaz-glass stone, which is connected to the setting of the pendant. This focal point – the pendant – is a large, faceted, open-back, brown-topaz-glass stone in an ornate setting. Its top is crowned with diamanté; the bottom rests on a scroll accented with another brown topaz. Please note that the dark striations in the large stones shown by my camera are not visible when the earrings are worn. Though not signed with the maker’s name, the ear clips are marked with the utility patent for one type of finding Schiaparelli used. The design of these pendants is undoubtedly hers – scroll down to see the matching bracelet.

Here, the scrolls are at the top and bottom of the large stones and at the sides of the smaller ones. This classic piece has a fold-over clasp with safety chain.
