"ALICE CAVINESS" in block letters

These vintage turquoise glass earrings are an imaginative 1950s design by Alice Caviness. An unusual textured turquoise stone shaped like a thick button with some sparkle is the centerpiece. Glass beads in sapphire blue (coated with aurora borealis) and turquoise set in gold-tone filigree surround half of the turquoise center. The components are mounted (wired?) onto a filigree back that holds the ear clip. The earrings face each other, so they beautifully frame the face when worn. This pair showcases this designer’s clever mix of colors and materials.
